New Bill Could Raise Sales Tax

NEW HANOVER CO. -- You may have to pay even more in sales tax if a new bill passes.

State Representative Danny McComas is working on the bill. It would allow New Hanover County voters to decide whether to raise the sales tax to pay for sewer repairs and road improvements.

Representative McComas told WECT over the phone Thursday that the proposed bill is getting tremendous support. He feels it's the right move to keep much of the financial burden off local residents on fixed incomes.

McComas says he intends to bring the bill up in Raleigh after the new year.
