The Alabama House of Representatives is expected to consider raising fuel taxes by $200 million as early as next Tuesday, April 5th. The legislation, HB394, introduced by Representative Mac McCutcheon (R- Madison) will raise fuel taxes (gasoline and diesel) to the average of the taxes/fees placed on gasoline by the contiguous bordering states. This will result in an increase of approximately six cents/gallon.
Opponents to the fuel tax increase maintain that there is plenty of opportunity to cut the size of government to address the critical need for infrastructure…without having to raise taxes. Created by Representative Will Ainsworth (R- Guntersville), a video has been produced that stars fellow conservative members of the House and Senate. Their message is compelling…..Watch the video below and let us know what you think…..
