Will you vote to pay more at the pump if the issue makes it back to the ballot?
But this time, they won’t ask for ten cents like they did back in 2018.
“The voters said no,” said Jefferson City State Representative Dave Griffith. “The language that was on the last ballot, it had the Highway Patrol in there. It had a number of other issues that were in there. Had it been just a two-cent increase in gas tax, I think it would’ve passed.”
Jefferson City Rep. Dave Griffith thinks the renewed push for a small gas tax hike is do-able. But he doesn’t feel talk about toll roads for Missouri will go anywhere this session.
