BILL CRAWFORD — Conservative tax plan needed for road and bridge repairs

Yes, the Mississippi chapter of Americans for Prosperity is right that we don’t need excessive new taxes for road and bridge repairs.

So, yes, the Mississippi Senate was right to kill the eight percent sales tax hike on fuel proposed by Senate Transportation and Highways Committee Chairman Willie Simmons.

But, Americans for Prosperity is wrong that we don’t need any additional taxes for road and bridge repairs. We desperately do.

What Americans for Prosperity should be about is promoting conservative tax plans for essential government services like road and bridge repairs.
