Share |



During the final week of the 2018 legislative session, the Missouri General Assembly passed HB 1460 that places a ballot measure on the Nov. 6, 2018, ballot increasing the state motor fuel tax.  If approved by voters, the ballot measure would:

  • Increase the state's motor fuel tax by $.10 from $.17 per gallon in increments of 2.5 cents a year over four years, bringing the state fuel tax to $.27 per gallon;
  • provide municipalities an additional $60,000,000 annually in revenue, when fully implemented, to fund local transportation projects.

“With Proposition D, Missouri’s cities will be able to apply local decision-making and work on local transportation priorities. The significant new funding for local projects in Prop D makes it a win for our citizens and our local and state economies."

Dan Ross, Executive Director of the Missouri Municipal League.
