State Profile

Alabama lawmakers are considering legislation that would raise the state gasoline and diesel tax by 4 cents a gallon to fund more than $4B in infrastructure improvements to roads, highways and bridges. The bill, HB 487, also would provide the state with money to match and leverage any funding provided from the anticipated federal infrastructure program, one of Trump’s campaign promises.
