Krusty Konservative: The gas tax can wait

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

So you all know I absolutely hate the idea of raising the Gas Tax
during these difficult economic times. That's not to say that I don't
believe in investing in our roads and infrastructure. If you listen to
any of the legislators who support the gas tax increase you would
think that Iowa hasn't done anything to recently to help fund road
improvements, which simply isn't true. Last year the legislation was
passed and signed into law that increased vehicle registration fees
substantially in our state. The increase in registration fees was one
of the recommendations from the Time-21 study. The problem the
legislators are having is that money isn't rolling in fast enough.
