Gas tax impact on tribes discussed

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Former state Transportation Secretary Neal McCaleb says the state's tribal governments stand to gain from a proposed gas tax increase.

McCaleb says about $7.5-million would be divided among the tribes if voters approve the gas tax hike in September.

Wednesday, McCaleb urged tribal leaders to become advocates for State Question 723. The proposal would raise the gas tax by 5 cents a gallon and diesel by 8 cents.

By law, tribes that sell motor fuel and compact with the state receive 4.7 percent of all state gasoline taxes collected.
