On August 15, the Reason Foundation and the Mileage-Based User Fee Alliance organized a Sustainable Transportation Funding Workshop with the Florida Transportation Commission.
U.S. transportation programs are in serious jeopardy. The Highway and Transit Trust funds have required Federal General Fund supplements and there is no support for increasing the Federal gas tax. Our workshop focused on finding solutions to these serious and continued budget shortfalls.
The workshop featured presentations from multiple State Departments of Transportation that have began to look at vehicle-miles traveled as an alternative to the gas tax. The MBUFA members that presented were from the Washington, Minnesota, Nevada and Oregon Departments of Transportation. Additionally, Adrian Moore of the Reason Foundation presented a Mileage-Based Fee 101 session that provided a policy and implementation overview of VMT systems.
Following we have provided the PowerPoint presentations from the workshop. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
