AGC Continues Push for Gas Tax Increase in Deficit Reduction Proposal, Action Needed

As members of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform work to finalize their report before the December 1 deadline, AGC and other transportation stakeholders continue to meet with those members to ensure any final package includes the 15 cent per gallon gas tax increase that was recommended in the co-chairmen’s draft proposal

Getting support from 14 of the 18 commission members necessary to trigger Congressional action won’t be easy, which is why it is important for the members to hear from stakeholders on the importance of a gas tax increase on both our transportation infrastructure and our country’s fiscal health.

Visit AGC’s Legislative Action Center to write a letter to the Commission in support of a gas tax increase as soon as possible.

AGC and coalition partners released a statement in support of the Commission’s proposal to raise the gas tax. The news was covered by the Orange County Register and the Everett Washington Herald.
