The state Senate has voted to end Wisconsin's automatic increase in the gas tax each year.
Representative Jeff Wood of Chippewa Falls introduced the bill.
It was approved in a 20 to 13 vote and would end the increase in 2007. Wisconsin's gas tax is now at about 30 cents a gallon.
That, plus another three cents a gallon to clean up old gas stations, makes the tax one of the highest in the country.
Wood is thinks the Assembly will vote on the bill early next week.
