Response from Rep. Reed

Below is the response I received from our local PA Representaive Dave Reed regarding my email to him about the gas tax. I wonder what other states do to finance their roads and infrastructure?

Wesley –

Thank you very much for your follow-up e-mail to our town hall meeting with your support for fixing our roads and bridges as well as your opposition to raising the gasoline tax.  I certainly agree that before any fees or taxes are raised that more efficiencies should be implemented within government and especially within the Department of Transportation.  Do you have any thoughts or ideas on how the additional dollars to fund such upgrades should be raised once such efficiencies are enacted?  I am more than open to any suggestions you may have since the maintenance of our infrastructure is a core function of government as well as one of proper places for government to invest in supporting our free market economy.
