Wyoming Governor Dave Freudenthal said on Sept. 19 that he does not support raising the state fuel tax to pay for widening several state highways, but his stance could be changed by widespread public support for the idea. Freudenthal predicted that the state legislature will not pass a gasoline tax increase during this winter’s budget session because it is an election year and because the state has a surplus of revenue. Plus, he said, the U.S. Congress has yet to act on a major transportation funding bill, which could ultimately decrease the amount of federal funding that flows to the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WyDOT).
