Wyoming Representative for House District 40, Mike Madden, was on Tuesday morning's edition of Public Pulse and he elaborated on some of the concepts behind the newly minted gasoline tax and a potential tax on beer. During the legislative session, state legislators signed into law a tax increasing state tax per gallon on gasoline from 14 cents to 24 cents, and it will take effect July 1.
Madden says based on conversations with constituents, Wyomingites aren't going to notice any more pain at the pump than is necessary to keep state government functional.
Based on the responses so far in our poll question of the week, which is: should the state change the 2 cents per gallon tax on beer, which hasn't been changed since 1935, a majority of respondents are in favor of that potential tax increase. Madden shares his opinion on the possibility of hiking up a beer tax.
