CRA calls on Legislature, Governor to launch EV road revenue collection pilot
CRA has released a new independent economic study laying out the current and projected under-payment of state and federal road revenue by electric vehicles (EVs).
According to the just-released study, performed by the experts at Anderson Economic Group, the transition to EVs in the past couple years has already resulted in the loss of $50M that would have gone to roads and transit. By 2030 – seven short years away – Michigan could be left with an annual shortfall of $90M!
At that rate, county road agencies will not be able to resurface 840 miles of local/primary roads – a distance from City of Monroe to Tahquamenon Falls and back again in both directions – every year!
We are calling on our legislators and Governor to launch a pilot project – not another study – this year that can begin to collect EV road and transit revenue proportional to EVs use of Michigan’s transportation network.
