2013 TRUST Legislative Agenda (printer friendly version here)
Support Bridge & Turnpike Modernization Plan. In an effort to continue to improve state and county structurally deficient bridges, TRUST supports adequate annual state appropriations to complete the “Bridge Improvement & Turnpike Modernization Plan” to bring the number of currently known structurally deficient bridges to less than one percent.
Motor vehicle fees redirected to transportation. A core principle of TRUST is all transportation-derived revenues should be used strictly for transportation. TRUST supports returning the remaining allocation of motor vehicle fees from general government to transportation and we encourage the appropriate allocation of motor vehicle fees to state highways, country roads and municipal streets taking into consideration previous motor vehicle fees and general fund allocations. TRUST will continue to support this concept as a matter of sound public policy.
Support timely reauthorization of federal surface transportation programs. TRUST supports efforts to permanently and adequately fund the Highway Trust Fund, and efforts to permanently reverse Oklahoma’s status as a donor state by ensuring Oklahoma receives the full share of its federal motor fuel fees.
