Standing Committee on Revenue and Finance (ABE10)

Transportation agencies are facing what are widely accepted as the most serious fiscal challenges in nearly a century. Most critically, fuel tax revenue is declining in relation to road use and transportation costs are continuing to increase with inflation. In light of this situation, many innovative funding and financing methods have been proposed or implemented. This session highlights both the current state of practice in funding and financing and innovative methods that show promise for the future.
