MASSACHUSETTS: 2013 This successful legislative campaign with the Massachusetts state legislature resulted in an increase of the gasoline tax in order to generate additional transportation funding. In July of 2013, Massachusetts legislators overrode a veto from Governor Deval Patrick (D) to enact a three-cents–per-gallon gasoline tax increase as part of an $800 million transportation bill—Governor Patrick had pushed for an even more ambitious plan. As a result of the bill’s passage, the gasoline tax increased by three-cents-per-gallon on July 31, 2013—from 21 cents-per-gallon to 24-cents-per-gallon.
