Vehicle-Mileage Taxes (VMT) - A Good Choice for Highway Finance?

 

Webinar Description: 

 

Far too often in the media there will be statements to the effect that the fuel tax isn't bringing in enough revenue to fix the roads, or that the tax itself will soon be "obsolete" and the way to go is a Vehicle-Mileage Tax or VMT. The trucking industry knows all about VMT's, under the name of weight-distance taxes, and the negative effects they have on motor carriers. 

Join this webinar to:

  • Learn why a VMT is likely to be a poor choice for highway finance
  • How pro-VMT arguments can best be countered
  • Why there is plenty of life - and revenue - in the fuel tax yet

 

Our presenter, Bob Pitcher, will also explain how these issues will probably loom larger still as Congress enacts an infrastructure bill possibly later this year.
