Gas Tax Increase Resize

HUNTSVILLE RADIO: Gas tax increase should be offset with a tax decrease on something else

API Senior Fellow J. Pepper Bryars recently discussed the proposal to raise Alabama’s gas tax on the Fred Holland Show, 105.3 FM WTKI in Huntsville.

Bryars said that if our lawmakers raise the gas tax to increase funding for roads and bridges, they ought to decrease taxes on something else so that the total burden on Alabama’s taxpayers doesn’t increase. He also called for transparency in the process, and said that we should take several weeks to examine the proposal rather than rush a plan through the state legislature.
