Deal stopped gasoline tax hike but favors of 1% sales tax increase?
This editorial in Dalton’s “The Daily Citizen” asks a great question.
If Governor Deal can sign an executive order to stop a modest gas tax increase from 12.1 to 12.9 cents (for the second time in one year), then why would he advocate to raise everyone’s tax with T-SPLOST?
“…if a small increase in the motor fuel tax is the wrong move for Georgia — if the state’s transportation needs don’t warrant such an increase — how can the state justify a new 1 percent transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST)… that would create the largest tax increase in state history.”
