TAX HIKE NOT NEEDED TO FIX ROADS
On July 9, the General Assembly will reconvene to finalize the state’s transportation bill.
There are plans to raise the state gas tax by 35 percent to an additional 6 cents per gallon. Vehicle registrations will increase $10 per year. Titling taxes will also rise.
We need to make sure that our transportation needs are met, but we do not have to raise taxes in order to maintain our roads.
