H.R.3636, known as the UPDATE ACT (Update, Promote, and Develop America's Transportation Essentials Act of 2013) was promoted by a bipartisan duo of Congressman who were flanked by a lifesize cartoon cutout of Ronnie Reagan earlier this week.

Democrat Earl Blumenauer [Democrat OR-3] and Republican Thomas E. Petri [WI-6] are cosponsoring the bill, which incredibly, calls for a 33.3 cents per gallon tax on gasoline and 39.3 cents per gallon tax on diesel fuel and kerosene. This amounts to a fifteen cent -per-gallon increase in current levels, which today cost the consumer 18.4 cents per gallon for gasoline and 24.4 cents per gallon for diesel fuel.

The bill also calls for an 'ADJUSTMENT FOR INFLATION' each calandar year on gasoline and 'TAXABLE LIQUIDS,' which they note "The term `taxable liquid' means diesel fuel and kerosene (other than aviation-grade kerosene.)"

The official bill description is "To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to increase the excise tax on gasoline, diesel, and kerosene fuels." Doing this will purportedly "maintain current Highway Trust Fund spending levels."

Their actual stated goal is to scrap the fuel tax altogether and implement a national road usage charge tax: "The Commission also noted that a Federal funding system based on a vehicle miles traveled system, is the consensus choice for the future... It is the sense of Congress that by 2024 the gas tax should be repealed and replaced with a more sustainable, stable funding source," the bill states.

Blumenauer, who's been in office since 1996, even published Ronald Reagan's November 27, 1982 Thanksgiving Day Speech on his website. Reagan had urged "Freedom of travel and the romance of the road are vital parts of our heritage, and they helped to make America great...But let's face it: Lately, driving isn't as much fun as it used to be. Time and wear have taken their toll on America's roads and highways. In some places the bad condition of the pavement does more to control speed than the speed limits. We simply cannot allow this magnificent system to deteriorate beyond repair... The program will not increase the Federal deficit or add to the taxes that you and I pay on April 15th. It'll be paid for by those of us who use the system, and it will cost the average car owner only about $30 a year. That's less than the cost of a couple of shock absorbers. Most important of all, it'll cost far less to act now than it would to delay until further damage is done."


Blumenauer issued a press release which stated, in part,
"The Congressmen were joined by a cutout of former President Ronald Reagan, who called on Congress to raise the gas tax during his Thanksgiving Day Address in 1982. Blumenauer played a few excerpts from President Reagan�s speech.

"I want to thank Tom for his leadership on this issue and for joining me on this bill, said Blumenauer. "He has been a champion for common sense for many years in Congress. Like President Reagan, he knows that that transportation funding was not, and should never be, a partisan issue. We all use our roads, bridges and rail, whether we�re Republicans or Democrats, rural or urban. Reagan also knew that the gas tax is actually a user fee, which means that those who use the roads the most are the ones paying for them. This should be our last gas tax increase ever, as we look for fairer and more sustainable funding methods, but it�s necessary to bridge the gap and keep our country moving."

"I am cosponsoring Rep. Blumenauer's bill because we need a first rate transportation system and the responsible thing to do is pay for it. For too long we have watched unmet infrastructure needs increase and the regular funding source to meet these needs become less and less relevant over time. We have to ask ourselves what is the more fiscally responsible route to take--budget gimmicks that fool taxpayers into thinking we have offset spending but that, in reality, put more debt in the hands of future generations? Or, restoring purchasing power to the Trust Fund so we can meet our transportation needs now and in the future?
"Ronald Reagan supported raising the gas tax back in 1982 because he believed in funding American infrastructure in a responsible way. I think he was right, and it's the best course of action we can take at this time."

In October, California launched its' own Pilot Program To Charge Drivers By The Mile. The author admits that the law will "burden families." Carpool lanes in Southern California, which were paid for years ago by taxpayers, are now being turned into toll roads to fleece the people. Orange County, CA alone was issuing 15,000 photo citations PER DAY after motorists were confused about the new system.

EXCERPTS FROM THE BILL:


HR 3636PDF

SEC. 2. FINDINGS; SENSE OF CONGRESS.

(a) Findings- The Congress finds the following:
(1) Since the passage of SAFETEA-LU, Congress has transferred over $50 billion from the General Fund to the Highway Trust Fund, in order to maintain solvency.
(2) The Congressional Budget Office estimates after the end of Fiscal year 2014, annual General Fund transfers of approximately $15 billion will be necessary in order to maintain current Highway Trust Fund spending levels.
(3) The Congressional Budget Office also estimates that in order to provide funding for surface transportation projects where the Federal benefit outweighs the cost, an additional $83 billion a year would need to be allocated to the Highway and Transit Trust Funds.
(4) The American Society for Civil Engineers estimates that in order to meet our economic and transportation needs, the United States should invest at least an additional $500 billion in our surface transportation system by 2020.
(5) The National Commission on Fiscal Reform and Responsibility report, often referred to as the 'Simpson-Bowles' plan, includes a recommendation to raise the gas tax by fifteen cents.
(6) The National Surface Transportation Infrastructure Financing Commission recommended, in their 2009 report, that Congress take action to prevent the Highway Trust Fund from becoming insolvent, and to avoid any reductions in infrastructure spending. The Commission also noted that a Federal funding system based on a vehicle miles traveled system, is the consensus choice for the future.
(b) Sense of Congress Regarding Replacement of Gas Tax- It is the sense of Congress that by 2024 the gas tax should be repealed and replaced with a more sustainable, stable funding source.
