Legislation to raise gas taxes and require a study of a road-usage tax died when the legislature adjourned for the year. The bill had been assigned to both the Transportation and Finance Committees, but received no committee consideration. The measure would have required a study of a road-usage tax and potential pilot program. In addition to creating privacy concerns, the bill sought to penalize national efforts to create a more fuel-efficient vehicle fleet by taxing drivers based on vehicle mileage.
