SC Lawmakers Advance Bill Calling for Gas Tax, Fee Increases

The Post and Courier reports, “Lawmakers in the [South Carolina] House of Representatives overwhelmingly backed legislation that would raise the tax by 10 cents per gallon over the next five years. It currently is almost 17 cents per gallon – one of the nation’s lowest.” The bill also raises the vehicle sales tax and increases fees for electric or hybrid cars. (There is no mention of tolling.)
