IBTTA CONGRATULATES SHUSTER ON APPOINTMENT ASCHAIRMAN OF HOUSE TRANSPORTATION AND INFRASTRUCTURECOMMITTEE
IBTTA Lauds Shuster’s Statement that all Options on the Table to AddressOur Nation’s Funding Challenges
 
WASHINGTON, DC
 
the world’s leading association representing America’s toll operators and
facilities, today congratulated U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA) on his appointment asChairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in the 113
th
 Congress.In the letter  
sent to the incoming Chairman today, Patrick Jones, IBTTA’s Executive
Director and CEO writes:
As you would expect, our industry strongly endorses your recent
observation that “we’ve got to figure out a way to finance the
system, and it needs to be done
in a fiscally sound way.” Your recent
statement about all options being on the table also encourages us
when it comes to funding to address our country’s transportation
challenges. More specifically, this is why we were very pleased tosee you include tolling in the toolbox of options for financing ourhighways and keeping America moving. With 5,431 miles of tollroads across the country, 30.8 million electronic tolling transpondersin use, and five billion trips per year on tolled roads and crossings,user financing is a practical, proven option that can help younavigate the challenging fiscal climate in which the next Congresswill convene.
When U.S. Rep. Shuster laid out his agenda last week, he indicated that he is open toevery approach when it comes to funding, including tolling. In the letter, Jones highlightsa recent Reason Foundation study that suggests that revenue collection through a fully developed all-electronic tolling system is no less cost-efficient than the gas tax.
