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