Final Report of the National Surface Transportation Infrastructure Financing Commission

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on March 2, 2009

“On February 26, 2009, the National Surface Transportation Infrastructure Financing Commission released its Final Report, Paying Our Way: A New Framework for Transportation Finance. See also the Executive Summary. The Financing Commission offers a roadmap for sweeping reform of the nation’s transportation infrastructure funding and finance framework. The Commission offers specific recommendations for increasing investment in transportation infrastructure while at the same time moving the Federal Government away from reliance on motor fuel taxes toward more direct fees charged to transportation infrastructure users. The Financing Commission’s recommendations are timely and provocative, as the nation grapples with staggering shortfalls in infrastructure funding and the new administration turns its attention to building what President Obama calls “the roads and bridges…necessary to make this country great again.”
