As the House now begins to consider Senate Bill 20, changes to the gas tax, some of the recommendations suggesting there are options rather than tax increases are being discussed. House Bill 67 would phase out the transfer from the Highway Fund to the General Fund over four years, $49 Million a year. Making sure that highway funds actually go to pay for highways is a good idea. Tax increases? Not so much.
