portion of gasoline tax revenue, now
dedicated entirely to highway main

The reason for this is that the school
people want larger salaries and more
money for schools and see in the re

source that has not bee nappreciably

years. All the other tax cows have
gone dry except the gasoline tax cow,
So they want it.
This emerged as a definite trend
