Minnesota Counties Considering New Taxes to Pay for Road Repair

I was just thinking the other day, “Man, I wish I could pay more taxes!”.  Well, it looks like that may become a reality for everyone in St. Louis County.

KBJR-TV is reporting that St. Louis County commissioners are debating whether to charge drivers a $10 tax per vehicle registration and plate renewal, to go towards road repairs.

The proposed fee would raise between $1.5 to $1.8 million dollars annually.

The other sales tax would include a one-half of a percent county tax which would also go towards county road construction projects.

This sales tax would potentially generate $8.5 to $11 million dollars annually.

What are your thoughts?  Are these new tax ideas justified?
