Resolved that the National Association of Home Builders support efforts in Congress to fully and adequately fund the federal Highway Trust Fund, using funding mechanisms that fairly spread the burden amongst all users and vehicle types, and oppose efforts that would target or shift the financial burden onto residential developments;
Be it further resolved, that NAHB call on Congress to:
- Shift away from the gas tax to a new revenue source only if the gas tax is eliminated;
- Separate public transportation funding from the Highway Trust Fund to ensure the HTF prioritizes roads and bridges; and
- Tax vehicles that do not consume motor fuel to ensure all vehicles contribute to the HTF, if the gas tax remains the primary revenue source.
