Need guarantee for how money for roads is used
To the editor:
Thursday's editorial about the Missouri Department of Transportation and what it did or didn't do with the 1992 6-cent fuel tax is misleading. According to your previous news stories, not all the revenue from the 6 cents went to MoDOT. It appears that the elected representatives in Jefferson City never intended the money to go only to transportation needs. I do not recall the percentage that went to other agencies' coffers, but it would be good if you reminded us.
I am not likely to vote for more taxes on my vehicle fuel unless there is a clear guarantee of exactly what it will be used for.
