Local group to use bus wreck to support transportation tax hike
(KPLR)- It might be bad timing, but a local group plans to use a wrecked bus as a prop in support of the Missouri Transportation tax proposal.
The Laborers International Union has been touring the country with a school bus carrying a prop resembling a piece of a fallen bridge.
They’re pushing Congress to pas a fully-funded highway bill.
They are also endorsing “Amendment 7”, which includes the three-quarter cent sales tax hike for transportation, on the August 5th ballot.
