senate Bill S. 1702

Eliminating Federal Funding of Transportation Projects

Argument in favor

Empowers states by allowing them to keep and control their gasoline tax revenues and set their own infrastructure priorities.

Argument opposed

Roads to nowhere are paved with good intentions. States would be forced to raise gas taxes, making the tax higher than current levels.

    Most roads are used by drivers from all states with gas bought from other states. Example someone could fill their tank in Connecticut and pass through Rhode Island and most of Massachusetts without getting fuel in that state. This issue would create tolls at all states, when we the tax payer is over taxed already. The issues that need to be fixed here is most likely corrupt contractors using cheap asphalt on the roads that doesn't last long. We should hold contractors and corrupt politicians accountable and to have a warranty on their work.
