NEGFA and other Agricultura Organizations Weigh in Against Funding Federal Highway Improvements with a Truck-Only Vehicle Miles Tax

In a letter to U.S. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Ron Wyden, 29 national associations and 49 state and regional groups asked the committee to include “broad-based funding mechanisms to ensure all who benefit from the transportation system contribute fairly to upgrading and maintaining America's roads and bridges.

The letter states, “As you work to advance a surface transportation reauthorization bill, our organizations urge you to create a legislative package that includes funding supported by all road users. We caution against the use of funding, such as a truck-only vehicle miles tax, that would place a disproportionate share of the burden on freight transportation.”
