TRANSPORTATION AND TAX POLICY. U.S. TAX POLICY FAVORS CARS AND TRUCKS OVER ENERGY-EFFICIENT ALTERNATIVES
Federal tax laws fail to promote energy efficiency in transportation. Low gasoline prices and subsidized parking at work encourage solo driving, and federal policies subsidize big trucks to the detriment of more energy-efficient railroads. Changes in federal tax laws are recommended.
- The Campaign for New Transportation Priorities is hosted by the National Association of Railroad Passengers. The policy papers are published in coordination with the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy, with support by the Changing Horizons Charitable Trust.
