Gas Tax Floor Bill Introduced

As promised here is the Gas Floor Tax Bill introduced by Senator Frank Wagner SB 1546 which places a floor to on the current gas tax, that is identical to the one already in place for the rest of the state excluding Hampton Roads and Northern Virginia. Because we don’t have this floor, Hampton Roads loses almost $40 million dollars annually in projected transportation revenue due to the decrease in gas prices. How does this impact our public transportation agenda in Hampton Roads if transit currently receives nothing from this tax? Easy, the vision of transit in the region is to create a multimodal transportation network in the region. That means we need better transportation options of every kind to make sure we are competing with other regions across the nation in offering our citizens seamless transportation options.

So how can you get involved?
