Madison gas tax hike

Rep. Mac McCutcheon has proposed a gas tax tax hike would index the Alabama gas tax to the average of four neighboring states, two of which are not much like Alabama at all.

The Madison City council is also getting ready to vote on a 3 cent increase and Barrack Obama has been pushing a 22 cent increase of the federal tax, the latter becomes more likely if we have a Democrat president next year.

The Madison tax increase will be discussed in a meeting at city hall, 5:30 PM on Monday 4 April. First reading of the tax increase ordinance could be at the council meeting at 6 PM on Monday 11 April.
