Official Says No Need To Boost SD Highway Taxes

Official Says No Need To Boost SD Highway Taxes
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota Transportation Secretary Darin Bergquist says the state's highways are in good shape and there's no need to boost state highway taxes now.

However, Bergquist says the situation could change if Congress cuts the federal funding that helps states build and maintain roads and bridges.

Bergquist met Wednesday with the South Dakota Senate Transportation Committee. Committee Chairman Mike Vehle of Mitchell says he has no intention of seeking an increase in the state motor fuels tax this year. But he says he wants to gather information to determine whether state highway taxes should be increased in future years.

The state's motor fuels tax was last raised in 1999 to fund highways.
