MO Senate Transportation Chairman to Push Gas Tax Next Session. Tolls? Not So Much.

MissouriNet reports, “The Missouri Senate Transportation Committee Chair [Senator Doug Libla, R-Poplar Bluff] indicates he’ll file another bill in January to increase the tax on fuels.” The report adds that, “Libla also admits he is ‘not a big fan’ of toll roads.” The senator tells the newspaper that, “I-70 is the only interstate that we have that you could actually toll. Now you could build a new road, but you cannot toll any of the existing interstates or any of the other existing U.S. highways.”
