2013 Senate Joint Resolution A: Replace gas tax with higher sales tax (Senate Roll Call 414)
facebook  twitter 

Failed 14 to 24 in the Senate on June 11, 2014, to place before voters in the next general election a Constitutional amendment to impose a 1 percent sales tax increase that would go to roads and replace the state motor fuel and diesel taxes. If the measure was approved then a large fuel tax increase proposed by House Bill 5477 would not go into effect. A two-thirds vote (26 votes) is required to place a constitutional amendment on the ballot.
