Vehicle Miles Traveled would hit Brainerd lakes economy hard

Congress is considering yet another tax on driving. House of Representatives (H.R.) 5972, the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Act of 2013, would levy a user fee tax on the distance a driver travels.

The Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) would tax every vehicle on the road, requiring every vehicle to be fitted with a device that both records miles driven and transmits the information to a government database.
