A Missouri Senator is ready to make his proposal for a new gas tax.
Senate President Pro Tem Dave Schatz of Sullivan will testify before the Senate Transportation Committee on Tuesday.
His bill would increase Missouri’s Gas tax by 2 cents per gallon, per year, over five years.
That would take the current tax from 17 cents per gallon to 27 cents per gallon.
The current gas tax has been in place since 1996.
