The passage of the state’s fuel tax hike earlier in the year has not ended the debate about funding Wyoming’s highway needs. The Associated Press reports that Gov. Matt Mead recently says he may ask for more money in his 2015-16 budget for the roads.

The 10-cent fuel tax hike lawmakers passed earlier in the year went into effect July 1. It is expected to generate $72.4 million a year for the state. But only about $47 million of that goes to highways each year. Most of the rest is sent to cities, towns and counties.

A new Wyoming Department of Transportation report says the agency still needs $64 million more a year to maintain highways in their current condition.
