SC lawmakers debate raising gas tax to fix crumbling roads

SC lawmakers debate raising gas tax to fix crumbling roads

On Monday, Bakk said he would meet Tuesday morning for breakfast with Gov. Mark Dayton to "talk strategy" and those meetings would begin to happen more regularly.

The Texas House of Representatives passed the second reading of HB 100 Wednesday afternoon, but not without opposition.

Dayton has proposed a $45.8 billion biennial budget; the House has proposed $46.3 billion; the Senate is at about $45 million.

The legislation has cleared two hurdles in the House and one Senate committee. We're making progress there.

Opponents say they don't think their cause is lost just yet and hope by the end of the session, the bill looks a little more like what they believe voters had in mind.

"It can come back next year", said Bradley.

Still, with 40 minutes left in my committee, we started on the vacation rental bill, and I made it a point to call every person from Flagler to speak, knowing it would take away from others that traveled to speak as well. "It's different managing deficits".

Senate Bill 303 sponsor Sen. "You do not want to tie the hands of Texas employers on their ability to recruit talent", he said.

Dan Huberty, the much-watched proposal seeks to increase annual, per-student funding about $210 to $5,350 while raising funding for school district transportation and educating dyslexic students. It needs one more vote to get to the governor's desk. "They are going to bring up the boogey man of oh we need to have income tax cuts, oh we need to have sales tax cuts, oh we need to restructure state government".

Senate Bill 303 would issue a $200 fine to drivers caught driving below the speed limit or "impeding the flow of traffic" in the left lane of a highway - unless the driver is actively passing another auto or preparing to turn left.

By a 7-1 vote without any discussion, the Senate Business & Commerce Committee advanced SB 10, which backers say will protect homeowners and business policyholders from the detrimental effects of unnecessary lawsuits. Sen.

The state Constitution says only the House can put the state in debt as well as raise revenue, so the Senate bill has not moved.

The Department of Revenue expected the amended version to provide about $250,000 in total tax breaks once fully implemented, while the Senate version would cost the state roughly $180,000 in property tax revenue.

Political infighting halted past efforts to enact such a rule, including an intense push previous year that went nowhere despite support from public safety employee labor unions, the governor, and various lawmakers, Democrat and Republican.
