recently passed increase in federal gasoline taxes will have little or no effect on the farmtomarket and ranch roads in Stotzer Less than seven percent of the tax funds designated for highways will go to the federally aided secondary system which includes the farmtomarket and ranch road All of the money designated could be used on Loop 1604 in San Stotzer Thats how little money is coming into So
