Fort Ripley State Senator Paul Koering said today he intends to vote against the Omnibus Transportation Finance Bill because it raises taxes and its a bad time to be doing that. Koering said he sent his constituents a survey recently and 79% of those who responded said they didn't want to see a gas tax increase for any reason. Koering said District 12 has seen a lot of recent highway construction and his travels around the state looking at bonding projects left him with the impression that Minnesota's roads are in pretty good shape. Koering said Democrats have enough votes in the Senate to override a governor's veto but not in the Minnesota House. The Transportation Omnibus Bill is to be debated and voted on Thursday.
