The politicians (who never have enough tax) are beating their drums for T-SPLOSH. T-SPLOSH is a 10-year guaranteed income for road contractors, their suppliers and their lobbyists, paid for by additional 1 percent sales tax.
T-SPLOSH expects to suck up $530,000,000 over this period from the people of this area. Officials claim more revenue is needed from sales tax because their revenue is declining due to people driving less.
If you are driving less due to the high price of gas, then what are you going to give up to pay the additional 1 percent sales tax over the next 10 years of your life? Sounds like Catch-22 to me.
The needless four-laning, curbs and sidewalks done to Gillionville Road is proof transportation heads have too much revenue already.
