New report calls for needed investment in state’s highway system

The Mississippi Economic Council and the state Chamber of Commerce say that 375- million dollars is needed to rebuild the state’s highways and bridges. The report suggests lawmakers consider higher fuel taxes, license plate fees, rental car taxes or general sales taxes. Governor Bryant has indicated that any tax increase would need to be offset by decreasing taxes somewhere else. The report targets 562- deficient bridges that need to be replaced specifically singling out bridges with timber underpinnings.
