A Cheyenne Legislator is looking for a new way to help Laramie County bring in more money.
Representative Dan Zwonitzer of Cheyenne is sponsoring a bill that gives voters the option of automatically extending the sixth-penny tax after the approved projects have been paid for.
Zwonitzer says Cheyenne loses out on millions of dollars when the sales and use tax drops to five cents between the time sixth-penny projects are paid for and the next round of projects are approved.
The extra money would allow the city to invest in more road projects. If the bill is approve, voters will have the option whether they want to extend the tax on the next six-penny ballot.
