Increase the fuel tax; do not start a VMT tax
A century ago, my grandfather worked with teams of mules and wagons laying pipes in the oil fields of Texas. Decades later that business became the JJ Willis Trucking Company and now the Texas Moving Company, with locations all over the South. Today we are proud to be an Odessa based company with a fleet of trucks.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shocked us. We do a lot of residential moving jobs, including military families, and it slowed down a lot during the outbreak. Income was down, but we were able to keep most of our employees.
