Laramie County Commissioner Linda Heath wants people to understand the difference between the fifth penny and sixth penny sales taxes.

Heath says people tend to confuse the two, and with the fifth-penny tax going before the voters this year, it's important to understand the difference.

She says the fifth-penny tax is used for road and street maintenance, law enforcement equipment, fire protection equipment, health and human services projects and the Laramie County Library system.

Heath called KGAB-AM in Cheyenne on Wednesday to explain the fifth penny tax in detail
