What Is the Federal Government Doing to Support Road Usage Charging?

The U.S. Bipartisan Infrastructure Law calls for the launch of a national road usage charge pilot program that could set the stage for the eventual phase out of fuel taxes.

Creation of a federal road usage charging program will be a natural progression from the programs currently being studied by state governments to replace traditional fuel taxes.

Public opinion of road usage charging is increasing and will continue if leaders help them recognize and understand the benefits of moving to a mileage-based user fee.
