A five-cent per gallon increase on the excise tax placed on motor vehicle fuels would be used to complete the Nebraska expressway system under a bill currently held in the Legislature’s Revenue Committee.
LB 796 was introduced by Sen. Arnie Stuthman of Platte Center. It would implement the five-cent increase next October, and retain it until the completion of the state expressway system.
The bill defines the expressway system as roads included in the 2006 State Highway Needs Assessment, compiled by the Department of Roads.
