NTEA commends U.S. Representatives Doug LaMalfa (R-CA), Chris Pappas (D-NH), Darin LaHood (R-IL) and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) for introducing H.R. 1440, and U.S. Senators Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Todd Young (R-IN) for introducing S. 694. These bipartisan bills would repeal the 12% Federal Excise Tax (FET) on heavy trucks and trailers.
NTEA calls on Congress to repeal the FET. Eliminating FET would provide Congress the opportunity to create long-term stability in the Highway Trust Fund by replacing it with a funding source not based on annual truck sales.
For questions regarding FET repeal, contact NTEA senior vice president and government relations expert, Mike Kastner.
