The current highway finance system has three fundamental structural problems: political barriers to raising user taxes; unpredictable revenues; and lack of linkage between user fees and highway system costs and benefits. This resource paper presents three options for addressing these problems with the current highway finance system. One would work, but is painful and thus unlikely; one represents light improvements to the existing unsatisfactory policy; and a third offers a long-term solution, but requires leadership and some imagination.
