County Option Fuel Tax Bill Is Dead
APMA-opposed SB 1147, which would have given county voters the ability to raise fuel taxes by up to ten cents per gallon, has been defeated. The bill was sponsored by LD25 Senator Bob Worsley, who chairs the Senate Transportation and Technology Committee.
The bill was voted down 6-2 in the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee yesterday. It was not calendared by the House Ways and Means Committee, where it was also assigned.
