You may use the following points in your message:

  • HJR 3316 would require a study of a mile-based user fee and require the committee to submit a report to the General Assembly by December 31, 2018.  
  • In addition to creating privacy concerns, the results of the committee’s study could penalize national efforts to create a more fuel efficient vehicle fleet by taxing drivers based on vehicle mileage.  As gas tax revenues decrease due to hybrid and electric vehicle ownership, states are looking for new sources of funding for pet projects.

Overview: Resolution (HJR 3316) to create a mileage-based user fee study committee to determine the feasibility if implementing such a program instead of the gas tax was introduced.
