Gas Tax Increase Approved by Tennessee House

 

Written by Joe Pitts
Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 67Nashville, TN – The IMPROVE Act,  Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam’s proposal to fund critical infrastructure projects and offer local government the option to fund transportation needs passed the House of Representatives on Wednesday. 

The more than six hour debate saw House members carefully and thoroughly consider dozens of amendments and counter proposals to the IMPROVE Act.  At the end of the debate, the bill cleared the House by a narrow margin.

“I have been out front and very public about my disappointment in our State government’s neglect, in recent years, to address our over-burdened roads, highways and dangerous bridges with a responsible funding plan.”
