Voters in August will decide whether to increase the gas tax and sales tax to drastically increase funding for transportation. Missouri lawmakers went down to the final hours of the final day before approving a bill that will ask voter approval of a $500-Million transportation funding package. The package asks for a four cent increase in the gas tax and a half cent increase in the general sales tax. Lawmakers say the extra funding is needed to upgrade Missouri’s deteriorating transportation infrastructure.
