As Wyoming lawmakers prepare
to head to Cheyenne to kick off the legislative session Jan. 14, a
bill that would boost the state’s fuel tax by 3 cents per gallon is
planned for introduction, the Casper Star-Tribune reported.
Revenue generated would be placed into a new multi-lane highway fund.
state’s Joint Transportation Highway Interim Committee is sponsoring
a bill to increase the fuel tax from 14 to 17 cents per gallon. The
bill, which includes exemptions for off-road use, reportedly would
raise about $19 million in revenue a year.
