Alabama gas tax hike defunct for current session

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama House Speaker Mac McCutcheon said Thursday that a proposed gas tax increase is defunct for the session after the legislation encountered heavy opposition in early debate.

House members on Thursday delayed a vote on a proposed gas tax increase to pay for road and bridge construction. Under the proposal, the state gas tax would have risen by four cents per gallon this year and another two cents in 2019. It could have risen by another three cents in 2024.

"Gas tax is dead. There will be no more gas tax this year," McCutcheon said after Thursday's decision to delay the vote.
