Kentucky 9/12 Project
We are founded and based on 9 principles and 12 values (9/12). We promote self-governing leadership and believe to impact the restoration and long lasting preservation of our republic citizen must be men and women of virtue and educate themselves and connect at local levels. This will be accomplished through Self-Education, Self-Reliance, Self-Sacrifice, and Divine Providence….. This is the 9/12 Project!
Please join House and Senate leadership for an important policy announcement on
Thursday, February 12th, at 1:00 pm in Capitol Room 327.
This is connected to Senate bill 1(Right To Work). We invite anyone that can to come out and join to make a stand and show support.
One question I have heard many times is what did they do with the huge increases in money they took in the last five years. It certainly wasn't all spent on roads. They certainly didn't address the problems on many, many State roads. One look at the re-designs in many towns throughout Kentucky and you'll begin to see the type of nonsense they have found to spend it on. The only bills on the table in the legislature so far are to increase the floor from 22 cents to 27 cents but, of course, there will not be a ceiling. The Transportation dept has indicated repeatedly they would like to see a return to 32 cents plus as soon as possible. This is exactly what they mean when they talk of stabilizing the road fund. An increase from 18.5 to 32 cents in six years, or a 72% increase in the tax you pay per gallon!
The Transportation Department has already used the threat of reduced County road funds to persuade many of those in County governments across the State to lobby for this increase. It's time to return to a flat tax rate. The road fund does not need to be tied to a constantly fluctuating wholesale price. I challenge our Governor candidates and Senator Damon Thayer to propose a 25 cents per gallon flat tax. It's more than the current floor, less than the current rate, ends the instability just as many County Fiscal Courts have requested. It's a win-win.
