CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) ā€” A bill to raise state fuel taxes by a dime a gallon is set for what could be its final vote in the Wyoming State Senate.

The bill already has passed the House and if the Senate approves it Thursday without amendment, it would head to Gov. Matt Mead for his signature.

Mead has called for higher fuel taxes to provide the Wyoming Department of Transportation and local governments with a stable source of road funding.

The bill would raise the tax from the existing rate of 14 cents a gallon up to 24 cents for gasoline and diesel. The hike would raise about $70 million a year.

Although the bill’s on the Senate’s agenda for Thursday, that list is subject to change.
