Drive More - Pay Higher Taxes

Would you be willing to pay an extra tax based on how many miles you drive?

That's a new proposal by Democrat Congressman Earl Blumenauer.

He says the country isn't raising enough money to fix its highways and roads and says a "Vehicle Miles Traveled" tax is a solution.

Blumenauer has re-introduced legislation for the government to study ways to implement it.

Some drivers in his state of Oregon will test a pilot-program in 2015.
