Current Bill Summary


SJR 18 - This proposed constitutional amendment, if approved by voters, increases the motor fuel tax by three and one-half cents on diesel fuel and one and one-half cents on all other motor fuel. The new motor fuel taxes would be apportioned as the rest of the state road fund moneys are currently apportioned.

This proposed constitutional amendment would also repeal the provision which apportions funds for the supplementary state highways and replace it with procedures for the restoration of local control and maintenance of the supplementary state highways and provides funding at levels equal to the lesser of the average percentage of state road fund moneys expended on the transferred highways over the three fiscal years prior to the enactment of the proposed amendment or the average dollar amount expended on the transferred highways over the three fiscal years prior to the enactment of the proposed amendment.
