SCS/SJR 17 - This proposed constitutional amendment eliminates non-highway agencies from receiving highway revenues over a ten-year period. The department of transportation and the state highway patrol are exempt from the diversion. Costs incurred by the Office of Administration on behalf of the state highway patrol and employees of the department of transportation may be paid from highway revenues. This will begin July 1, 2005, provided that the voters approve this resolution in November 2004.
The resolution directs one-half of the proceeds from the tax
on motor vehicles, trailers, boats, and outboard motors which
currently goes to the General Revenue Fund to the state road fund
over a ten-year period. This redirection will be phased in over
a ten-year period beginning the first fiscal year following the
adoption of this resolution.
