How much should hybrids and electric vehicles contribute to roadway funding? A Policy Brief


Baker Center researchers issued a new policy brief – How Much Should Hybrids and Electric Vehicles Contribute to Roadway Funding? It looks at how hybrid and electric vehicles might contribute to the funding of roads. Presently roadway funding is based on gas tax revenue and thus these vehicles pay a lesser share. Researchers on the brief are:  Rebecca J. Davis, a pre-doctoral fellow of the National Bureau of Economic Research and PhD candidate in the UTK Dept. of Economics, Dr. Matt Murray, Baker Center Director, Boyd Center for Business & Economic Research and professor of Economics; and Dr. Jilleah Welch, Research Associate at the Baker Center.  You can read the brief here:  PolicyBrief.1.17.RoadwayFunding
