2021 Transportation Tax ProposalsIssue brief
State Budgets Taxes & Fees Transportation
Many people are advocating for new revenues for the transportation budget because the activities they want to pay for cost more than the current resources provide. The Democrat majorities passed cap and trade legislation and a low carbon fuel standard that may undermine gas tax revenues if people drive less. The effective date of these decarbonization policies were linked to passage of new transportation revenue legislation that includes at a minimum a 5 cent per gallon gas tax increase. The governor vetoed the language.
