'Just go ahead' and raise taxes temporarily

Jun 6, 2017 - Evan Mussroen, Riverton


Regarding the state revenue deficit. I read that the legislators are considering a tax increase temporarily.

They should just go ahead and do it. We need ti to get us over the hump. It won't be the end of the world, and it will make sure we continue t get needed service. They are so afraid of being criticized for higher taxes, but they will be criticized for letting the state go down the tubes.
