Auckland fuel tax: 'I'm really disappointed' - Cooper

From Morning Report, 6:12 am on 30 April 2018

Auckland Council decides on Monday if it will press ahead with a regional fuel tax but not all councillors are convinced the plans will benefit their communities. The council is debating the projects that will be funded by a regional fuel tax that will raise the price Aucklanders pay for petrol by 11.5 cents a litre by July. Waitakere Councillor Linda Cooper is furious about the lack of detail over where exactly the money is going. She told RNZ reporter Eva Corlett there is something in the plan for everyone except West Aucklanders.
