Kibbie: Go for the gas tax

Echoing sentiments of our mayor in Carroll, Iowa Senate president Jack Kibbie is calling for a gas tax increase to fund infrastructure.

Here is The Register:

Work on roads and bridges can no longer be put off — even if that means a higher state gas tax, Senate President Jack Kibbie said.

“It’s time to declare war on the potholes and put people to work,” said Kibbie, a Democrat from Emmetsburg. “I support efforts that result in a gas tax increase.”

That will mean better roads, jobs and an economic boost, he said.
