Abstract

• The viability of the present system of road funding has in recent years been widely questioned, for it has proved insufficient to support spending programs at their current levels. • Some transfers from the general fund have been needed since 2008 to keep the HTF solvent. • Fuel taxes, the primary source for funding roads in the US, have not kept pace with inflation for years. • A wide variety of measures to increase revenue has been presented: raising fuel taxes, extending toll highways, implementing a VMT fee, etc.
