Gas tax bill appears likely during the '08 session, but so does a veto
WILLMAR -- When Sen. Steve Dille was a member of the House of Representatives, he was one of just five Republicans to vote in favor of a gas tax increase.
The year was 1988 -- the last time Minnesota raised its gas tax.
The Republican leadership didn't favor the increase at the time, said the Dassel legislator, who is proud of the vote he took 20 years ago.
"History has shown that was the right thing to do," Dille said.
