Oconee County’s Two State Representatives Cast Conflicting Votes on House Transportation Bill That Increases Taxes on Motor Fuel

Alters Local Taxes Too

Oconee County’s two representatives, both Republicans, cast conflicting votes on House Bill 170, which overhauls the state’s motor fuel tax, with Rep. Regina Quick joining the 43 Republicans in opposition and Rep. Chuck Williams voting as part of the 72 Republicans in favor.

The bill, approved on March 5, would have major impact on both local and state taxes on motor fuel if approved by the Senate in its present form.
