Bill to Raise the State Gasoline Tax

Thursday, March 17, 2016


Alabama lawmakers are considering a proposal to raise the state gasoline tax to fund road and bridge construction. Republican Representative Mac McCutcheon of Huntsville, introduced the bill Tuesday. The proposal would raise the tax by six cents per gallon. The tax would be adjusted every four years to equal the average tax in Alabama's four border states. The tax would end in 2027. The House transportation committee will hold a public hearing Thursday. The bill comes as many lawmakers say there is no appetite among legislators for tax increases. McCutcheon says it is an investment in the state's infrastructure.
