You may use the following points in your message:

  • L.D. 1150 would create the Road Usage Charge Task Force, to guide the development of a mileage-based user fee pilot program for Maine’s highways and bridges as an alternative to the gas tax system.
  • 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: Legislation (L.D. 1150) has been introduced to establish a task force to guide the development of a mileage-based user fee pilot program to be implemented instead of the gas tax.
