Drive More - Pay Higher Taxes

Posted:

Would you be willing to pay an extra tax based on how many miles you drive?

That's a new proposal by Democrat Congressman Earl Blumenauer.

He says the country isn't raising enough money to fix its highways and roads — and says a "Vehicle Miles Traveled" tax — is a solution.

Blumenauer has re–introduced legislation for the government to study ways to implement it.

Some drivers in his state of Oregon will test a pilot–program in 2015.
