Boston Globe: “Patrick proposes bigger gas tax in transit plan”
In rejecting the transportation financing measure the Legislature sent him, Patrick countered with a proposal to further increase the gas tax in 2017 if Massachusetts Turnpike tolls expire as scheduled….”I have said I would accept the Legislature‚Äôs $800 million a year as a big step forward, so long as that number is real. This bill does not achieve that,” Patrick said.
