Local officials pushing for road funds

My feeling on allotment caps, when we talk about tax revenue, is that they lead to waste. The legislature imposes caps on the amount of revenue that a particular area can utilize. Some of these sources of revenue vary, from year to year, in the amount of revenue that comes in, but the caps are fixed at an arbitrary level.

Some areas of government get too little money, and some get too much.

The Utah League of Cities and Towns(Deseret News) wants a sales tax cap removed that would allow municipalities to get more money from the State to spend on their roads.

I think it's a sound idea.
