KSPE Supports Increase to State Highway Fund



KSPE President-Elect Wayne Nelson Testifies in Support of SB 224

In March 2017, KSPE President-Elect Wayne Nelson provided testimony to the Senate Tax Committee on Senate Bill 224, which would increase the fuel tax by a nickel.  This new revenue would be sent to the State Highway Fund where it is protected from transfers by the Kansas Constitution.  The progress of the current comprehensive transportation plan, known as T-WORKS, has slowed due to many transfers of highway money to the State General Fund. Many supporters of infrastructure funding supported the bill.

SB 224 would help backfill nearly a third of the projected highway transfers for the next two fiscal years.

KSPE does not relish the idea of increasing fuel taxes.  However, understanding the fiscal climate of the state and the remaining projects left uncompleted in the T-WORKS program, SB 224 could prove to help make good on the promise the ten-year plan started seven years ago.
