Local Lawmaker Ready to Fight Gas Tax

KIT

A gas tax for the state of Washington is not going to happen this legislative session says 14th District State Representative Charles Ross.

Ross says a gas tax to fund state transportation needs will have to wait until next year or after the state finishes projects like the 520 floating bridge.

“We have enough projects ongoing right now that could run into cost overruns so a gas tax isn’t something that’s needed at this time.”

Democrats want to raise the state’s gas tax by 10 cents a gallon. If approved, the proposal would boost the state’s portion at the pumps to nearly 48 cents a gallon, giving Washington the distinction of having the highest state gas tax in the nation.

Ross is convinced that will not happen this year.
