WHO PAYS FOR HIGHWAYS: IS A NEW STUDY OF HIGHWAY COST ALLOCATION NEEDED?

The purpose of the paper is to help the Congress evaluate whether the current information on highway cost allocation is adequate or whether a new cost allocation study is desirable. This paper examines previous cost allocation procedures and the problems of data and methodology they have encountered. It reviews past studies to identify practices that may create problems when they are applied to current highway programs. Special attention is given to new program directions contained in proposed legislation. In the event that the Congress decides to request a new study of cost allocation, this paper also identifies five decisions that should be made about the basic nature of such a study. /Author/
