The gas tax increase is less than the' cents asked by President Eisenhower, but is estimated to be enough to maintain the rate of highway construction at close to its present level for the next three years. THE ACTION hroke a long deadlock over sources of reve- nue to keep construction mov- ng on the net- work. Although the committee on irevioiis occasions had re- leatedly turned down further ncreases in the gasoline tax, t reversed itself today and voted 16-9 to boost the 3-cent motor fuel tax to 4 cents.
