You may use the following points in your message:

  • HCR 27 would require the Mileage-Based Transportation Funding Task Force to submit its findings, recommendations and any proposed legislation by December 1, 2017.
     
  • In addition to creating privacy concerns, the results of the committee’s study could penalize national efforts to create a more fuel efficient vehicle fleet by taxing drivers based on vehicle mileage.  As gas tax revenues decrease due to hybrid and electric vehicle ownership, states are looking for new sources of funding for pet projects.  

Overview: A House Concurrent Resolution (HCR 27) to create a mileage-based transportation funding task force to determine the feasibility of implementing a road user fee instead of the gas tax was introduced.
