MO to Raise $8 Billion For Transportation Without Tolls or Fuel Tax

A Missouri House committee just voted to advance an effort to raise about $ 8 billion over the course of the next decade specifically for road and bridge repairs and maintenance. Now, I know what you’re thinking; that $ 8 billion has got to come from somewhere, and more than likely it’ll come from new and increased tolls.Turns out that not only will the money not be coming from new tolls, but the proposed resolution actually prohibits adding tolls to Interstates 70 and 44. Maybe it’ll be more fuel taxes or a dreaded mileage tax? Nope, this transportation work is going to be funded by a one-cent general sales tax.
