What’s Up With All These Highway User Bills?

Perhaps local governments are making progress moving the needle, or maybe it’s LIFT4MD logojust because it’s an election year – but the 2018 session has experienced an inundation of bills seeking to restore highway user revenues to local governments.

MACo’s key legislative initiative bill is the Local Infrastructure Fast Track for Maryland Act – a consensus bill seeking to restore highway user revenues for counties and municipalities according to a phased-in schedule that the Administration can get behind.

But, there are quite a number of other bills out there, too – and all them have their own schedules for restoration and targeted beneficiaries.
