FEATURED WORK

Compendium of Revenue Alternatives in Response to Fuel Economy Improvements and Vehicle Fleet Electrification (2024) – This compendium explores various revenue mechanisms studied or adopted by states as alternatives to traditional fuel taxes. The purpose of this document is to build a common level of understanding around these transportation funding mechanisms in the United States. It describes the main concepts behind each mechanism and provides examples of where and how these strategies have been implemented.
