The Transportation Committee has suggested that Inland Action send a letter of support for the proposed state Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. The Act would raise the states gas excise tax by 12 cents a gallon.  It would raise the diesel excise tax by 20 cents a gallon and boost the diesel sales tax by 5.75%.  Zero emission vehicles would be subject to a $100.00 per year fee. The taxes and fees proposed are expected to raise $52.4 billion over ten years.  A constitutional amendment would require the money be spent on transportation.
A motion was made and seconded to write a letter of support.
Discussion ensued.
The motion failed.
