Breaking down Proposal 1

Image 1 of 2

Proposal 1 is what you've probably heard of as the sales tax hike that will fund road repairs. 

But, it's more than that. 

Passing Proposal 1 would generate revenue in more ways than raising the sales tax, and it would also fund more sources than the road repairs. 

Right now, when you go to the gas pump you're paying both a sales tax and a fuel tax. Passing Proposal 1 would eliminate the sales tax and increase the fuel tax. Passing Proposal 1 would also increase vehicle registration fees.

In addition to funding road repairs, the proposal is also about funding schools, local governments and a tax break for low-wage earners.
