Invest in transportation infrastructure
The number one legislative issue in 2021 is transportation funding. In a recent poll of KACo officials, a third indicated that more than 40 percent of their county roads were in moderate to significant need of repair.
In the KACo poll, 91 percent agreed that the gas tax needs to be raised, with four out ten supporting at least a 10 cent increase.
KACo supports the following:
- Increase the gas tax and other transportation-related fees; establish fees for electric vehicles.
- Preserve the agreed-upon formula for distribution of funding to counties and cities.
