Presented by Hal Morse, Executive Director of the GBNRTC on August 23, 2017 to Citizens for Regional Transit.
Nadine Lemmon, of the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, presented this talk at the Citizens for Regional Transit quarterly meeting on October 16, 2015.

As cars are becoming more fuel-efficient and Americans are driving fewer miles, there is a lot less gas tax revenue collected; the highway trust fund is becoming exhausted. The federal gasoline tax hasn't been raised since 1993 and has never been indexed to inflation. Given this looming fiscal cliff, doing nothing is not an option.
