State fair poll: Tax hikes for transit, transportation receive positive responses

House booth

Most of those participating in the House of Representatives state fair poll are willing to pay more in taxes to fund metro area transit and additional funding for statewide transportation needs.

Conducted by the nonpartisan House Public Information Services Office, the poll is an informal, unscientific survey of issues discussed in prior legislative sessions and that may be topics of discussion in 2017. 

Of the 6,550 people participating in the 2016 opinion survey, 60.6 percent expressed support for at least a dime increase in the state’s 28.5 cents-per-gallon gas tax to fund highway and bridge improvements, while 32.2 percent are opposed and 7.2 percent are undecided or have no opinion.

Nearly an equal split — 59.6/32.2/8.1 — support an increase in the metro area sales tax to fund mass transit projects, including bus and light rail projects. Read more at Session Daily
