Voters can tax themselves for more transit

State legislators in Texas are debating a bill that would give voters the right to approve increases in gas taxes as a way to fund transit.  See more here. It’s painfully obvious that gas taxes haven’t adequately kept up with the costs associated with the projects gas taxes fund, nor have gas taxes done enough to help transit and other non-road projects.  I think the bill has merit and political legs.
