States to Watch in 2016: Transportation Funding

Eight states passed gas tax increases in 2015, while a variety of others took other actions to shore up transportation revenues. But 2016 could also see a large number of states join the club even after Congress approved a federal surface transportation bill late last year. At least seven states appear poised to consider gas tax increases. Others are actively exploring tolling or other revenue options. During this annual CSG eCademy session, transportation experts, state house and political beat reporters discuss how transportation funding might fare in 2016 legislative sessions across the country.
