As gas prices rise and vehicles become more fuel efficient, gas tax revenues have not kept up with funding requirements for the nation's transportation system. The question is who will pay to maintain and make necessary improvements in the nation's transportation system in the future? Congress and the Administration are currently stymied on the transportation funding problem, and states are struggling to find new funding solutions. James L. Oberstar, Member of Congress (1975 to 2011) and Chair of the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee (2007 to 2011), will host a forum to discuss the future of transportation funding and who will pay. The speakers will discuss what should be the basic principles for funding transportation, how we do it now, and how we should do it in the future. The forum will include a participant discussion led by Mr. Oberstar.
