Sales taxes could be increased for roads, transit projects or both under bill

SALT LAKE CITY — Counties would be able to raise local sales taxes for roads, transit projects or both under a bill advanced unanimously Tuesday by the House Transportation Committee. HB423, sponsored by House Majority Whip Francis Gibson, R-Mapleton, would also allow private companies to compete with the Utah Transit Authority for transit projects. The bill, which now goes to the full House, was described as a back up to more comprehensive legislation from the Legislature’s Transportation Governance and Funding Task Force.
