Statement of RPV Chairman Pat Mullins on Governor McDonnell's Transportation Plan

RPV Chairman Pat Mullins gave the following statement:

 

"Big ideas don't come along that often in politics. Yet Governor McDonnell's proposal to end the gas tax and still put more money to transportation is just that - a big idea that addresses one of our Commonwealth's most serious problems.

 

This plan acknowledges the reality that gasoline use has likely peaked, and higher mileage vehicles will only drive those numbers lower and lower. At the same time, it provides a dedicated stream of revenue that will grow as our economy expands.   

 

I applaud the Governor for bringing this big idea to the table, I look forward to working with both Governor McDonnell and the General Assembly to both end the gas tax and improve our Commonwealth's aging roads by seeing this proposal enacted into law."
