Infrastructure Finance Commission Readies Final Report

The National Transportation Infrastructure Financing Commission met this week in Washington, DC to proceed with finalizing its report on critical transportation funding issues.  The report is expected to be released before the end of the year.

The 15-member commission was tasked by SAFETEA-LU to assess the level of Highway Trust Fund revenues that will be needed to maintain current transportation systems at current levels of service – and to recommend whether and when other revenue sources will be needed to supplement the existing Highway Trust Fund.

Prior to meeting formally, several commissioners attended a Breakfast Forum of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation on the topic of the Netherlands’ National Pay-per-Use Road Pricing Initiative – actions very relevant to the Commissioner’s work.

The commission had drafted most of the chapters that will appear in the final report and they had discussions about the text of those chapters to try to reach agreement among all present.  They did not complete that effort and will reconvene on Dec. 10, and prior to that meeting they plan to exchange comments via e-mail.
