Wyoming 6th Penny Bill Limited To Road Construction
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A bill that would give localities the option of using sixth-penny sales tax money to pay for road work has won preliminary approval in the Wyoming state Senate.
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported that the Senate voted Wednesday to restore the bill to the version that passed the House. They eliminated a provision that would have allowed the tax to be used for other purposes other than road maintenance, reconstruction or renovation.
The bill is sponsored by Rep. James Byrd, a Democrat from Cheyenne. It still faces two more votes in the Senate.
