2018 Legislative Session:

Indexing Local Motor Fuel Tax:

FACERS requested that FAC seek legislation to change the method of calculating local gas taxes to correspond to the method used for calculating state motor fuel taxes.  This method adjusts the tax annually in accordance the changes in the Consumer Price Index.

This proposal was included in the 2017 legislative agenda of FAC but has not been adopted as a priority for the 2018 session.
