ESCAMBIA & SANTA ROSA COUNTIES -- Earlier this month a four cent gas tax was approved in Escambia County. The tax will help pay for the county's public bus transportation known as ECAT.
The money will generate roughly $730,000 a year for the bus system.
The tax goes into effect in January of next year. In Santa Rosa County, a six cent a gallon gas tax is being considered.
The revenues are used to pay for road maintenance.
