A House bill produced yesterday by Rep. Earl Blumenaur (D-Ore.) would raise the federal gas tax by 15 cents per gallon. That would raise the federal tax on gas to 33.4 cents per gallon and on diesel to 42.8 cents. The increased amount of money raised by the tax would go toward maintaining transportation infrastructure. The Washington Post has the details.

Sounds good, but it is a rough road to get it passed.
Yep. You can propose pretty much anything (as we've seen in the past) but pushing it through is a different deal entirely.
