AAA Commends Collaboration on Bipartisan Transportation Bill

Michael Green Contact TileStatement by Bob Darbelnet, President and CEO of AAA

“AAA applauds Senators Boxer, Vitter, Carper and Barrasso for their collaboration on bipartisan transportation legislation that will be introduced next week.  We look forward to reviewing the bill upon its release.  The onus is now on the Senate Finance Committee to consider how to fund this bill.  AAA urges Chairman Wyden and Ranking Member Hatch to commit to holding a committee vote on an increase in the federal gas tax in addition to the other transportation funding options that will be considered.  AAA, along with a broad set of stakeholders, recommends a federal gas tax increase as the most viable and effective option, provided the additional funds are thoughtfully invested in transportation improvements that ease congestion and increase safety.”
