New Taxes? Bill McAbee says NO

Upon a proposal for a new sales tax, my councilman, Bill McAbee stood his ground and voted NO. The resolution passed 5-2. Cindy Wilson joined McAbee. It would create a committee to make plans on spending the new money on our roads with matching funds from the state's infrastructure bank. Why can't government fund these projects with spending cuts elsewhere and from growth increases?
