Falling Gas Tax Revenues Prompt States to Eye EV Mileage Fees: ALEC in The Washington Times
Jonathan Williams, Chief Economist and Executive Vice President of Policy at ALEC, discusses gas taxes in The Washington Times. Many states say revenues have plummeted due to drivers staying home or switching to hybrid and electric vehicles.
Williams discusses that states will find enough money for roads and bridges when they stop diverting transportation funds to other purposes.
“Before looking to raise additional revenue, states should be looking at how to provide road maintenance and construction in a way that keeps costs down.”
