Among the topics of discussion: taxing auto use based on mileage instead of the gas tax currently used for a big portion of California’s highway fund.

The California Transportation Commission and Metropolitan Transportation Commission invite you to a public forum to learn more about the local, regional and state role in funding road projects and maintenance, the impacts and reasons for California’s deteriorating transportation system, proposed short-term and long-term funding solutions, and the potential implementation of a road charge based on miles driven to stabilize road repair and maintenance funding.
