Missourians would continue to pay an extra tax on auto tires udner a plan proposed by a legislative committee today (Wednesday). Kurt Silver has the story from Jefferson City....
A special House Committee on Solid Waste recommended extending the 50-cent per tire fee for three years beyond its expiration in the year 2001.
The fee was established in a 1990 law designed to cut production of trash.
Committee Chairman Gary Wiggins, said that law needs to be extended.
There was no opposition voiced from the comittee to extending fee.
The proposal now goes to the current session of Missouri's legislature.
