US legislators introduce bill to swap gas tax for carbon emissions fees
from Transportation Today
A group of legislators in the House of Representatives introduced last week a bill meant to combat climate change and fund development through the introduction of a carbon emissions fee. While carbon emissions would now be taxed under the MARKET CHOICE Act, the gas tax would be eliminated. Through this, U.S. Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Penn.), Salud Carbajal (D-Calif.), Francis Rooney (R-Fla.), and Scott Peters (D-Calif.) believe they could navigate a path forward to slowing climate change and repairing the nation's roads.
