US Chamber of Commerce Supports Higher Gas Tax

According to a recent article, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports a reasonable increase in the federal gas tax to help fund money needed for the many infrastructure needs in the U.S.

While supporting a raise in the gas tax, the Chamber of Commerce also supports continued effort to find other ways to support highway projects as well.

Republican Representative John Mica disagrees with the Chamber's stance, saying the Chamber of Commerce "innovation and investment" rather than a gas tax increase.
