What You're Saying About Amendment 7

Jul 31, 2014

Although several issues and races are crowding Tuesday’s primary ballot, the transportation tax amendment has been particularly contentious. The amendment increases the state sales tax, now 4.225 percent, by three-quarters of a cent to fund transportation projects.

On Thursday, Jewell Patek of Missourians for Better Transportation and Jobs, which supports the amendment, and Tom Shrout of Missourians for Better Transportation Solutions, which opposes it, debated the proposal on “St. Louis on the Air.”

The debate carried over to Twitter, where supporters and detractors shared their views.
