Missourians could pay more at the gas pump to offset income tax cuts, according to a bill proposed in the Missouri House.

The House read a bill Thursday that would cut income taxes for the top tax bracket in Missouri while raising fuel taxes to offset the cuts. These funds would then be used to finance infrastructure improvements in the state.

Bill sponsor Bart Korman (R) thinks that this bill is a solution to funding road work in Missouri.
