The new taxes implemented in the last legislative session need to be repealed. An income tax in any form, including a capital gains tax, should not be considered. With wise budgeting, the need for increased spending in the areas of law enforcement, addiction recovery and mental health can be implemented with no new taxes.
The concept that is being floated of a pay-for-mile tax to either replace or more likely to supplement the gas tax is intrusive. As more electric cars and fuel-efficient vehicles are put to use, there may need to be a rethinking of the best revenue source to pay for transportation, however, the pay-for-mile concept, at least as it is presently envisioned is not it.
State regulations need to be reviewed from top to bottom. Unneeded or outdated regulations are a cost to both those who are regulated and to the government in enforcing those regulations.
