CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming legislative committee endorses hiking the state tax on gasoline and diesel.

The Joint Revenue Interim Committee met in Casper on Thursday and approved a draft bill that would increase the gas and diesel tax by 10 cents a gallon, bringing it up to 24 cents. The committee also endorsed hiking registration fees for cars and SUVs by $10 each.

According to the Associated Press, most of the revenue would go to the Wyoming Department of Transportation and to local governments for road construction.

Proposals to hike the gas tax have failed in recent legislative sessions but the idea may have more traction in next year’s legislative session. Several groups endorsed the tax hike including the Wyoming Contractors Association and the Colorado-Wyoming Petroleum Marketers Association.
