Albuquerque city council to vote on gas tax proposal

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque city councilors are about to decide on whether to put a two-cent per gallon gas tax on the ballot. The proposal, the brainchild of Councilor Isaac Benton, goes to a full council vote Monday. If voters pass it, the money collected would be used for road improvements. Back in April, Councilor Dan Lewis said he was against the plan. He would rather see the money go toward more police officers. That meeting starts at 5 p.m. Monday night at the City Council Chambers downtown.
