House Transportation takes on one big bill on Tues Feb 3

February 2, 2015

On Tuesday, February 3rd, at 10:00 AM the SD House Transportation committee will take on one massive bill.

HB 1131 – SoDakLiberty PostsRevise certain taxes and fees to fund improvements to public roads and bridges in South Dakota.

This is the massive tax (and fee) increase promised by Governor Daugaard as an alternative to the spearheaded by Sen Mike Vehle (SB 1). I still haven’t had time to fully study either of the two bills. Instead of commenting on this massive tax and fee hike, I’ll just repost this summary provided by Sen Novstroup at a recent cracker barrel in Aberdeen (PDF version). When (if) I get time I hope to actually dig deeper into both proposals.
