ATA Responds to Reports on White House Infrastructure Meeting

 

Arlington, Va. – Today, American Trucking Associations President and CEO Chris Spear issued this statement following reports that the White House is open to increasing the fuel tax to fund infrastructure:

 

“We support the President’s big and bold vision for strengthening American infrastructure.  Because it is a user fee, the fuel tax is the most conservative, cost-effective and viable solution to making that vision a reality.  Ninety-nine cents of every dollar goes directly to road and bridge maintenance, and it doesn’t add a penny to the deficit.  There’s a reason why Ronald Reagan twice signed this idea into law.”
