Senate Panel OKs Gas Tax - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Senate Panel OKs Gas Tax

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A Senate panel has approved a gas tax measure without making any changes of its own to the plan.

The Senate Budget and Taxation Committee voted 9-4 on Thursday for the bill, which already has passed the House of Delegates.
    
The panel also approved a separate measure for a constitutional amendment that would provide greater safeguards against using transportation money for other purposes.
    
The gas tax measure would raise the cost of a gallon of gas by about 4 cents in July by adding a 1 percent sales tax. It would rise to 2 percent January 2015 and 3 percent in July 2015. It could rise to 5 percent in 2016, if Congress does not approve a measure allowing states to charge an Internet sales tax.
