If Missouri voters pass Proposition D on Nov. 6, it would eventually lead to a ten-cent per gallon increase in your gas taxes. The extra cash is meant to help Missouri roads and bridges. Here’s how it looks on the ballot:
Shall Missouri law be amended to fund Missouri state law enforcement by increasing the motor fuel tax by two and one half cents per gallon annually for four years beginning July 1, 2019, exempt Special Olympic, Paralympic, and Olympic prizes from state taxes, and to establish the Emergency State Freight Bottleneck Fund?
If passed, this measure will generate at least $288 million annually to the State Road Fund to provide for the funding of Missouri state law enforcement and $123 million annually to local governments for road construction and maintenance.
