A divided NC House OKs 36-cent gas tax

The House gave tentative approval Wednesday, in a 70-47 vote, to a bill that would drop the state gas tax to 36 cents a gallon starting April 1 and continuing through December. The new rate would be a 1.5-cent tax cut initially, since the current tax is 37.5 cents. But the bill would prevent motorists from enjoying a much bigger tax cut for the last six months of the year.

Bill would define new kind of vehicle

The NC House Transportation Committee will consider a bill that would add “autocycle” to the state’s motor vehicle lexicon. It would provide separate regulations for a vehicle that combines automobile and motorcycle qualities. The legislation describes a three-wheeled vehicle that is not available for sale, yet.
