Representatives in the N.C. Houses'
raised the possibility last week oioo
alternative funding for the recently
proposed $8.6 billion highway f
The highway package calls for the' I
construction of multi-lane highways
across the state, loop projects in
urban areas and the. paving oif'.f
' The initial proposal for the funding
of this package was a gasoline tax tj
increase of 5.25 cents per gallon, a-y
$10 increase in the driver's license fee
and a highway user's fee, said Rep.
Samuel Hunt, D-Alamance.
The chairman of the subcommittee
on highway funding asked represen-
tatives for alternative funding pro-. . ;
posals, Hunt said. :.
Some Republicans want a bond
issue to finance the package, and -,
other representees want part of the.
governor's proposed sales tax.
increase put into the general fund,
which then could be converted over; .
to the highway fund. Other proposals v
include raising the license fee more,: 'it
Hunt said he prefers the present ; -finance
package. "If the (RepublK-
cans) want a bond issue, then it'
should be made a separate issue not,--;
related to the present highway:-?
Rep. Coy Privette, R-Cabarrus,-.'
said he was a strong supporter of the
bond issue. The bond issue would."
allow the state to purchase right-o,
way now instead of later when
inflation could cause Drices to rise..'.
North Carolina has a two-year,
budget, which restricts the amount of . -J:
time the state can sign contracts for .
construction, Privette said. The bond ,
issue would give the state a line of , -credit
that it could use to pay for the ;
project over a long period of time,
A $1 billion bond issue would . -knock
2 cents off the gasoline tax, .
Privette said. Since gas prices have
increased 10 to 15 cents per gallon
in the past two weeks, the state cannot
afford to add too much to the price
of gasoline right now, he said.
Gov. Jim Martin has endorsed a
5.25-cent gas tax increase because he .
believes it is the best way to fund the
highway program, said Tim Pittman,
communications director for Martin. , ,
The governor has left the door ,,,
open to alternatives, but Jie is working
with;, the General Assembly; to focus5i5
on the gas tax, he saidThe governor-,-,
feels the gas tax is the best way tO;r;
raise revenue because it is the quickest ; j
way to raise the funds, Pittman said ;;f
in a telephone interview last week. )

There are several grocery stores. o

Steele said. "There's simply no need

The lights and noise from custo-- v:

a disturbance to residents of Elliott -.

problems on Elliott Road, which
might delay emergency vehicles. o
David Sharpe, manager of the
