About "Highway Trust Fund / Gas Tax"
The following case mandates that the USFG raises the gas tax by 12 cents over the next two years in order to fully fund the Highway Trust Fund and pegs the gas tax to inflation. It also mandates that revenue from the gas tax will only go toward building and maintaining roads, bridges and transit systems. This is a similar proposal to one introduced by Senators Chris Murphy and Bob Corker. The majority of Americans and numerous advocates want the plan. The harms are specific to the fact that the HTF is underfunded and uses deficit spending to bridge the gap between revenue and spending within the fund.
