State, federal government considering ‘pay per mile’ tax plans
OLYMPIA, Wash. -- There could soon be a tax on the miles you drive. Lawmakers in DC and Olympia are considering it. The idea is getting traction because there's just not enough money coming in from the gas tax. Electric and hybrid cars are better for the environment, but if fewer drivers are filling up, that's less money, and elected leaders say we need to make changes.
