We request you vote to support Amendment 7 on Aug. 5. This measure will provide funding for transportation projects statewide selected by regional planning organizations and ensure the maximum amount of our federal gas tax dollars return to Missouri.
These projects will benefit our bridge, roadway, railroad, aviation, port as well as rural and urban mass transit systems.
Food, prescriptions, fuel and rent are exempt from this proposed tax. This transportation sales tax will expire in 10 years. This method of transportation funding has been carefully studied over the past several years and is the preferred method of raising funds by constituents surveyed.
Please join my fellow professional engineers and me in setting an example for other states on how to solve our transportation funding crisis.
Please help us upgrade and sustain our transportation system by voting YES on Amendment 7.
Thank you for your support.
