Funding for Transportation Infrastructures

The Senate voted to let Missouri voters decide whether they want a sales tax hike to fund transportation infrastructure.
Despite concerns over how the tax increase could be disproportionately hard on the poor, the Senate endorsed a 3/4th cent increase.
The tax would go towards funding transportation infrastructure improvements.
The bill's sponsor, Mike Kehoe, said the bill could also help with job growth.
