I’m not a fan of tax hikes. Neither is Delegate Lacey Putney. That’s why I took a serious look at Del. Putney’s proposal to raise the state sales tax by a percentage point from the current 5 percent to 6 percent. Half of the new revenue that this tax would have raised, estimated at $1.1 billion per year, would have been deposited into a new Supplemental Highway Construction and Maintenance Fund. The other half of the sales tax increase revenue would have gone toward mental health, public schools and state colleges.
