At this very moment, Republican Senators are fulfilling a pledge that they made on Tuesday to filibuster today to block passage of the Senate Democratic Caucus plan to create jobs and improve our roads and bridges. Senate Bill 121 will invest $1 billion dollars in road and bridge construction and create approximately 30,000 new jobs without raising a dime of taxes–not one thin dime. Republican Senators say that they are opposed to this plan and have offered their alternative–Senate Bill 229 by Senator Del Marsh. Senate Bill 229 proposes to give county commissions the right to raise gasoline taxes by up to 5 cents per gallon.
