Busted Roads Statewide Could Be Fixed With Potential Tax Hike

JACKSON, MISS– It is no secret that roads in Mississippi need some major repairs. It could take up to $500 million to get the projects done. 

The House Transportation Committee is considering a tax hike to cover that bill. The increase would bring in $100 million dollars a year for five years for specific projects that are in dire need of immediate repair.

One-third of the state’s transportation system is in disrepair, says the committee.

A proposal for that tax increase could be submitted in the coming weeks. The tax hike would only exist until the projects are funded.
