Proposed bill increases teacher pay by raising tax on gas

TULSA, OK (KTUL) — Lawmakers will address a bill that would increase teacher pay by increasing taxes on gas. 

“My bill is giving teachers a four percent raise this year and a four percent raise next year,” said Stanislawski, who claims tax on gas has not been raised in 20 years.

“So my proposal is to raise diesel tax seven cents from 14 cents to 21 cents. Raise regular unleaded from 17 cents to 23 that’s six cents raise. That should bring in approximately 178-million dollars of new revenue. That is enough to pay for the teacher pay raise,” said Stanislawski.

He says the plan would mean consumers paying more for fuel. He will introduce his bill during Education Day at the Capitol.
