As we use less fossil fuels to cover more ground, the gas tax can’t keep up and California’s transportation system is now experiencing a funding shortfall which totals $5.7 billion a year.
That is why Senate Bill 1077 created the California Road Charge Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), and why that committee has spent the last year holding public meetings around the state and gathering input from a broad range of stakeholder groups.
* Offer drivers a choice in mileage recording methods
* Protect drivers’ privacy and personal information
* Determine the impacts of a road charge on various income levels
* Determine the impacts of a road charge on urban and rural drivers
* Seek participation from at least 5,000 vehicles that represent the geographic, demographic and socioeconomic diversity of our state, and
* Not cost participants anything
I hope you will take a moment to review the TAC’s final recommendations and share this email with your network. Together, we can help take steps to solve our transportation funding crisis. For more information, contact Delaine Moore, Communications Director.
