Budget: Governor loses support on gasoline tax

BUDGET IS THE DEAL BREAKER: Alaska Trucking Association on Tuesday withdrew its support for Gov. Bill Walker’s proposed 100 percent increase of the motor fuel tax. The group cited a lack of budgetary discipline.

Earlier this year, truckers had agreed in principle to doubling the fuel tax from 8 cents to 16 cents, but only as a part of a framework that included significant budget reductions.  The May 24 letter cites current reductions as negligible.
