Should Drivers be Charged for Every Mile Driven?

  • Aired: 09/20/2013

  • Rating: NR

This will mean states will have even less cash on hand to repair roads and bridges. As a solution, Oregon is moving forward on plan it's been talking about for years -- a new tax based on the number of miles driven rather than a tax on fuel.
