THE OREGON WEIGHT-DISTANCE TAX: THEORY AND PRACTICE. ADMINISTRATIVE SUBCOMMITTEE ON FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT OF THE STANDING COMMITTEE ON ADMINISTRATION
This paper discusses the theory of weight-distance taxation and relates Oregon's experience of 40 years with this form of highway user fee. This experience has shown that weight-distance taxes can be efficiently administered with reasonable collection costs, that such taxes do not unduly burden motor carriers, and that such taxes do not adversely affect relations between states or impair the efficiency of our national transportation system.
