Focusing
Congress on
Infrastructure
Funding
NSSGA WORKED TO KEEP the need
for infrastructure funding in front of
lawmakers as they debated budgets
and spending bills.
"With other priorities out of the way,
we hope that Congress will commit to
meeting our country's infrastructure
needs in 2018," said Laura O'NeillKaumo, NSSGA senior vice president of
government and regulatory affairs. "A
comprehensive infrastructure investment package will expand our economy,
grow jobs and help fund much-needed
repairs and improvements to our crumbling roads, highways and bridges."
NSSGA sent a letter to Capitol Hill,
co-signed by 100 other business and
industry leaders, to pass bipartisan
infrastructure legislation. The association, together with the coalition
known as the Infrastructure Working
Group emphasized the need for a
substantial and long-term plan from
Congress to address shortages in key
federal funding such as the Highway
Trust Fund.
It has provided stable, reliable
and substantial highway funding for
decades since its inception in 1956, but
this is no longer the case. The trust
fund faces a $121 billion shortfall over
the next decade. Members of the U.S.

current user fee of 18.4 cents per gallon on gasoline, last raised in 1993,
and 24.4 cents per gallon on diesel
and index it to inflation is one way
to help restore purchasing power, fill
the funding deficit and ensure reliable funding for the future. Further,
they suggested requiring fully electric and hybrid vehicles paying their
fair share. The current air cargo tax

could be broadened to trucking services. A user fee could likewise be
generated based on the value of the
freight assessed through waybill taxes.

There are a number of possible funding mechanisms to explore but this
country cannot continue to waste more
time on speculation. Congress must act.
