Maryland's gas tax and vehicle registration fees go directly into the Transportation Trust Fund to pay for transportation related projects.  Maryland's Cities and Town maintain nearly 15% of the total highway lane mileage in the state, but they receive less then 1/2 a percent of the money from the Transportation Trust Fund.  This needs to change!  And we need your help! 

1.5 million Marylanders live in our 157 incorporated cities and towns. Municipalities provide essential, quality of life services such as water and sewer, police protection, trash removal, recycling, road maintenance, snow removal, parks and recreation, and streetlights.

Under Maryland’s Smart Growth laws, all municipalities are considered Priority Funding Areas (PFAs), which means they must have transportation infrastructure in place to support future growth in the State.

Municipal roads are among the oldest, and most heavily traveled roads in the State. These roads and bridges not only serve municipal residents, but are used by ALL residents of the State to access places of employment and important services and facilities in cities and towns.

Municipal HURs were first reduced by 96% in 2009 when the monies were used to backfill the State’s budget shortfall during the economic downturn. Since that time, municipalities have lost over $245 million with no plans for repayment.

We need to restore municipal highway user revenues (HURs), not only to meet current road maintenance needs, but more importantly, to provide a long-term, stable funding source for municipal transportation projects.
