|Subject:||County Referendums for Transportation Funding|
|Next week, I plan on introducing legislation that would allow a county to levy and collect a local tax to assist funding local mass transportation and transportation organizations. However, before assessing the additional local tax, the respective county must adopt an ordinance or resolution. The Department of Revenue will be required to promulgate and enforce the regulations required to administer the excised local tax. A county may impose the local tax on the following:
My legislation is part of the House Transportation Task Force’s package of bills that is responsible for finding innovative ways for the Commonwealth to fund transportation, while also ensuring the current funding sources to transportation are as effective as possible.
I hope that you will join me in sponsoring this important piece of transportation related legislation.
Introduced as HB2068
