Assessments of alternative funding options for infrastructure investment

Jun 08, 2017
From the Government Institute

Insufficient funding at the federal, sate, and local government levels has led to, in certain instances, long-delayed actions to improve aging transportation infrastructure and sub-optimal levels of new infrastructure investment.

In this economic modeling research paper, the KPMG computable general equilibrium model is used to analyze the impact on the U.S. economy of a hypothetical infrastructure investment program funded by three alternative options: (1) an increase in the federal fuel excise tax rate, (2) introduction of a nation-wide vehicle mileage tax, and (3) introduction of a nation-wide vehicle weight tax.
