Gas tax increase

Introduced Jan 23, 2019
Status: Assigned To Committee




Would double the motor fuel tax set at the state level to 38 cents from 19 cents per gallon. The gas tax hike would take effect July 2019, and increase each year based on a formula tied to inflation but capped at 1 cent per year. This tax hike would come atop the layers of state and local fuel and sales taxes Illinoisans pay at the pump.
