After lengthy debate on March 6, the N.H. House passed House Bill 617, a bill that increases the road toll, commonly referred to by opponents as the "Gas Tax," by 4 cents per gallon of gasoline in each of the next three years (fiscal years 2014-2016) and then 3 cents in fiscal year 2017, for a total 15-cent increase over the current road toll of 18 cents per gallon. It is referred to as the 4-4-4-3 plan, with Rep. David Campbell of Nashua as the prime sponsor.
