The Transportation Bill is raised in the Senate, and that’s where it stalls, at least for now. An afternoon of debate on the bill, which would raise the per-gallon-fuel-tax by 6-cents and the general sales tax by 3-eighths percent, ended with the legislation being shelved and no date set for when it would be brought up again. If approved, the legislation would go to a vote of the people. Republican Floor Leader Bill Kenney of Lee’s Summit can’t say when the bill will return, but he says he expects it to happen “sooner than later” and he does expect a bill to be passed by the chamber.
