Nixed gas tax could delay transportation projects
ST. PAUL -- Maybe next year.
That is what state lawmakers in charge of the transportation budget are saying about major transit and road projects, which likely will be put off because they cannot get new funds.
A gasoline tax planned to be a major part of the House and Senate transportation budget proposals was yanked after Gov. Mark Dayton said Monday that he would not support it, leaving the lawmakers with a revenue hole.
