Added on: July 11, 2019
NATSO on May 10 submitted its comments in response to a request for stakeholder input from the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure with regard to the Committee’s work on infrastructure this Congress. In its comments, NATSO urged the T&I Committee to facilitates a process whereby the United States can recalibrate how it pays for infrastructure, such as increasing the motor fuels taxes. NATSO also expressed opposition to counter-productive “shortcuts” to real infrastructure investment, including tolling existing Interstates and commercializing Interstate rest areas. NATSO further expressed support for policies that incentivize fuel retailers to invest in bringing alternative fuels to market and reward businesses that make these investments.
