The General Assembly will convene in special session today to ratify the governor’s suspension of the gas tax. The question not being discussed, but directly affected, will be what to do about the lost revenue to the state. That money goes for roads. The metro area might just get in a pinch without that source of revenue.
Notwithstanding that issue, the legislature is expected to support the governor’s move. Look for the Republicans to stay in line. It will be interesting to see what stance some of the Democrats take.
