State lawmakers are considering several proposals to improve infrastructure, all of which could lighten your wallet. One proposal would raise the state's sale tax to pay for a bond issue to improve roadways. Another would allow utility companies to see a surcharge in order to recoup costs of infrastructure improvements. The third proposal would issue hundreds of millions of dollars in bonds for construction on a new Fulton State Hospital, college campuses and improvements to state parks. Tax money would pay off those bonds. Right now it's unlikely all three proposals would pass this year.
