Yarema, was quoted in the ENR article "Experts: Switch Transportation Funding Away from Gas Tax" as saying "We were charged with projecting the needs of surface transportation over the long term, how much money goes into the trust fund under the current policy and finally, what should Congress consider doing to replace the gas tax.
