One of President Trump’s priorities for 2018 in his State of the Union address was infrastructure. Central Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis says infrastructure itself is a priority, but so is fixing how the government funds infrastructure projects.

 

Davis says the majority of highway improvement money comes from the federal gas tax, but improving technology is making that tax less effective.

 

 

Davis says he would support a user fee for those who drive electric cars to keep the highway trust fund afloat.

 

 

Davis appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
