I still think if we need money for transportation increase the gas tax that way the people who use it will pay for it, does not seem that complicated to me.

It's the party of no that forced the guv to come up with this convoluted scheme. Somehow raising a user tax is bad, but spreading it among everyone is not.
With a 5.8% sales tax, if you are a resident of Alaska, purchase a VA product, you pay for new pavement to relieve congestion to DC.
Not only does this scheme encourage use of fossil fuels, Bob wants to finance it at the expense of schools and law enforcement.
"By 2018, the governor’s plan would also take $283 million a year from the general fund, which funds services such as education and law enforcement.
The governor also has said his plan will bring in $845 million a year by fiscal 2018. He is counting on federal legislation to deliver $250 million of that, betting on a bill — long stalled in Congress — that would give states the authority to make online retailers collect sales taxes."

Gov't says we should conserve, drive less, carpool, use efficient cars and now they they say we dont use enough fuel. WHAT A JOKE!!! If you drive an SUV, you are wasting more fuel, so pay more.
5.8 sales tax is WRONG!
