Paying for roads and maintenance in Utah

I am OK with the intent that we get to the point that the equivalent of all of the sales and use tax on vehicles and vehicle-related products be used to provide and maintain roads.

I am not OK with building roads and then letting the new or old road fall apart for lack of maintenance.

Keeping the existing tax on gas provides some additional weight for those individuals that put a lot of miles on the roads.

I would rather decrease the overall tax burden than raise it.

I voted for the bill, again.
