Proposed gas increase in Missouri set to be on November ballot


A proposed gas increase in Missouri will move ahead to the November ballot. This comes after an associate circuit judge ruled against the lawsuit challenging the potential 10 cent hike.

That lawsuit claimed the proposal, known as Proposition D, was unconstitutional because it deals with more than one issue. However, after Tuesday’s ruling, Missouri voters can expect to see the measure on the November 6th ballot.

If voters support the idea, it would increase the tax on gas by two and a half cents a year for four years. $123 million of the yearly total would go to county and city road projects, while the remaining $240 million would be used statewide.
