Leaders not dismissing possible statewide vote on tax hike

JACKSON – A proposal to allow voters to decide whether to increase taxes to pay for transportation needs was not rejected Tuesday by the state’s Republican leadership.

The presiding officers in the Legislature – Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves in the Senate and House Speaker Philip Gunn – nor Gov. Phil Bryant completely dismissed the proposal of Sen. Dean Kirby, R-Pearl, to ask the voters to decide whether to increase taxes and fees for transportation.
