Editorial: When the majority isn’t the majority for gasoline tax bill, our roads suffer

Despite having 29 Democrats, House Speaker Rusty Bowers, R-Mesa, and Rep. Bob Thorpe, R-Flagstaff, on Rep. Noel Campbell's side to get majority in a 60-member chamber, his proposal to double the state’s gasoline tax is still in trouble because a provision in the state's constitution dictates that any bill requiring an increase in taxes must have two-thirds vote of both the House and Senate.
