Governor wants tax increase Governor John D. Rockefeller, IV, and top state officials left no doubt Thursday, December 15, that the Governor will recommend a tax increase to the upcoming session of the West Virginia Legislature. "Absolutely," Executive Assistant to the Governor Thomas Goodwin said when asked if a tax increase request is a certainty. "I think it is fair to say the Governor is coming in with a tax increase." He did not say specifically how much of an increase the Governor will want from the Legislature. Rockefeller would say only, "It is not safe to assume anything," when asked about the matter after reporters and editors from throughout the state received a briefing on the state's fiscal situation by Finance Commissioner Miles Dean, Highways Commissioner Charles Miller and Tax Commissioner David Hardesty. Miller said the State Road Fund is losing federal aid because it cannot match federal dollars on projects already underway, therefore, he said, any available state money must pay contractors the entire amount on projects. "A scare tactic? No it's a fact," said Miller. pointing to a chart that showed no money available for administrative support, routine roau maintenance and road renovations during the 1977-78 fiscal year. In addition, the Commissioner said bond funds are failing and he predicted non-federal aid will drop from $86 to $65 million during the 1978-79 fiscal year. Tax Commissioner David Hardesty compared the State Road Fund with the General Revenue Fund, which relies heavily upon the personal income tax and the business and occupation {B&O) tax, and found the Road Fund wanting. "The general revenue will grow because it's elastic," he said. "It is stated as a percentage and it will grow automatically at a rate of 10 to 12 per cent a year in the foreseeable future." Hardesty said the Road Fund depends heavily on the fixed rate gasoline and motor carrier tax and the license tax. "We're relying on borrowed funds for construction and increasingly for construction and simple mainten- ance," he added. Finance Commissioner Dean chal- lenged statements made by former Governor Arch A. Moore, Jr. concerning a surplus made available to the present administration.
