Northern Kentucky Leaders Express Support for Gambling to Raise Tax Revenues; Gas Tax Increase Also Supported
Posted: 23-Jul-2003 7:28PM CDT

The Judge Executives of Boone, Kenton, and Campbell County expressed support for casino gambling during the 14th Annual State of Northern Kentucky Addresses yesterday. The Judge Executives also expressed some support for increasing the state's gas tax. The leaders are concerned about the dwindling tax revenue being collected by Frankfort and are afraid that services will be cut if new revenue is not found. A proposed expansion of KY 237 in Hebron is named as an example of a project that is in jeopardy if new funding cannot be found.

How about raising taxes on cigarettes? Kentucky could get millions! So what if one smokes? It was of one's own doing and now the payment would be increased.

Just think of funding returning to where it needs to go, road projects that are delayed would be back on schedule, and my tuition at UK would decrease... :)
