The advancement of the State’s and local community’s transportation program hinges on the funding and legislative programs generated from not only the Federal government, but by the actions of the State legislature. Funding the State’s necessary transportation and infrastructure projects remains challenging. Chapter 90 funds fall far short of meeting local needs. To obtain the necessary funds, some local municipalities have proposed their own taxes to fund local transportation and infrastructure projects. Legislation is currently proposed to allow local municipalities the right to impose local gas tax and regional capital taxes for specific infrastructure projects. Tolls and mileage based taxes are also possible at the State level. The panel will discuss the merits of these bills, how these bills have the potential to impact funding for future projects and other local and State initiates that could be used to fund transportation projects. This important update is a great opportunity to network and provide your thoughts to our legislative leaders.
