  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: You mean that tax that the Commissioners would not put on the ballot for so many years? Strange things happened when the citizens got a chance to vote on that issue.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

I would agree that the roads and bridges in MO are in need of repair, but not with a raise in sales taxes.
1) sales taxes have nothing to do with transportation, everyone including the poor will be hit hard with this taxes.
2) raise the gasoline taxes instead, Mo has the 6th lowest and have not been raise in years, I guess it makes too much sense for the politicians
3) who is behind this ammendment? The largest contributors to politicians in Jefff City, contractors, engineers and trucking companies
4) Trucking companies will benefit the most with contributing the least since they are the ones that destroy the roads. They also do not want
a raise in gasoline taxes for obvious reasons.
5) Money will not only go to roads and bridges but to mass transport, airports and trails (really!!).
6) Vote no and tell Jeff City to go back to the drawing board.
VOTE NO!

When I was young, I wanted to be older.  This is not what I expected!

I would rather have a half cent sales tax to benefit Missouri's bridges than putting more on a gallon of gas. Maybe I'm wrong, but a few more cents at WalMart isn't that big a deal.

It is actually 3/4 of a cent increase. It will be the largest tax increase in MO history. It doesnt only benefit the roads but walking and biking trails, think about that.
MO has the 6th lowest gas tax in the country. I got a solution raise taxes on diesel only, after all, the trucking industry are responsible for the poor conditions of our roads.
Do you know that the ammendment also states that there will be no raise in gas taxes for the next 10 years, who gains from this ammendment?

there will be a lot of issues coming up between now and November. make sure to read the fine print!

the trucking industry isn't responsible for all the damage, neglect and cuts are also to blame. how many hwy sheds were closed in the past few yrs. MO voters passed a hwy  bill several yrs ago. the problem was the money was not spent on hwy's. the voters are suspicious of hwy spending bills now.
