The increase of more fuel efficient cars means there is less revenue available for road maintenance and other projects funded by gas tax money.

 

State Representative John Huffman, who is a Prius owner, says he's willing to consider some taxing options to raise more money.  "I do think that we Prius owners or volt owners need to pay our fair share; although our cars are much lighter than on 1-ton farm truck or whatever. and so maybe it doesn't do quite the wear and tear on roads and bridges as the larger trucks. but i do think we need to get some equity into the equation."

 

Huffman says he will look closely at what the budget committee proposes, because he is cautious about how they propose to collect the information.

 

And, he says the fee has to be reasonable.
