Stop Haslam’s Gas Tax! CALL Legislators NOW! | 6TH District Patriots

As we know, Governor Haslam is recommending a gas tax hike with monies being designated to TDOT for road and bridge repairs and upkeep. This tax increase will have a direct impact upon our purchasing power.  The people in the end will be subjected to an increased cost for their purchases no matter what the commodity.   The trucking business will increase costs to offset the gas hike which will be transferred to businesses and businesses will increase the cost of their commodities to the people.  There are ways in which monies can be designated to TDOT without a gas tax increase.  Remember, Tennessee currently has 1.8 billion in surplus revenues.  Can any of these monies be used by TDOT or are there other revenue measures to offset a gas tax hike?  The District 6 Patriots will have Andy Ogles, TN Director, Americans For Prosperity speak to this matter at our February 9thmeeting.  You will be in receipt of additional information regarding this meeting.
At this time, however, it so important that you voice your concern of the pending gas tax hike to elected officials who will be reviewing and voting on this issue.   The following Senate and House Committees will be involved: Senate Transportation and Safety Committee, Senate Finance Ways and Means Committee, House Transportation Subcommittee and House Finance Ways and Means Committee.

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
