Local leaders from all across Indiana are teaming up  together, to help keep government funding.

50 mayors from across the state with governor pence yesterday, including Terre Haute's Duke Bennett.

The topic of discussion is finding an alternative to a proposed tax cut for business.
   
That cut would eliminate an equipment tax for businesses, but in return decrease state funding by $1 billion.

Bennett says while he supports making it work, there has to be more economical way to do it.

"What kind of a negative message are you going to send by shrinking communities, shrinking services? So all I'm saying is, and we're all saying is, let's look at the overall tax structure, let's do everything we can to improve it, but not soley at the expense of local government," said Terre Haute mayor Duke Bennett.

Locally the business tax cut would decrease the Terre Haute City budget by $5 million.
