In VA, the governor has proposed eliminating the motor fuels tax and just increasing the general sales tax by something like 1/8%. Sounds great, but now all the tax revenue will go into the general fund and I’d be willing to bet that VDOT becomes under funded, so then they will have to add another tax down the road. Politics.
Edit: I didn't mean to say add another "tax". I should have said "increase revenues".
