During the summer of 1978, the highway funding situation in Arizona was reviewed and the alternatives for overcoming the anticipated future deficits were studied. Although a number of user, as well as nonuser, revenue sources are potentially available, the emphasis was placed on increasing user charges. Based on this study, it was recommended that revenues be increased by (a) staged increases in the fuel tax, (b) increases in registration fees, and (c) increases in third-structure taxes. In all cases, it was recommended that user taxes be tied to a consumer price index so that additional increases will offset the effect of inflation. (Author)
