New gas tax on MO ballot for Nov.

MISSOURI (KFVS) - Several issues will be on the ballot in Missouri in November, including a new gas tax.

At the poll, you'll see Proposition D.

It reads, in part, "shall the state law be amended to fund Missouri state law enforcement by increasing the motor fuel tax by two and one-half cents per gallon annually for four years."

If passed, the tax would raise $288 million a year for the state road fund, which helps fund Missouri state law enforcement. It would also raise $123 million a year for the local governments for road construction and maintenance.

Meanwhile, other issues like minimum wage are still in the process of getting certified by lawmakers.

We should know in August what other initiatives will be on the November ballot.
