Blumenauer (D-Oregon) introduced H.R. 3636, the Update, Promote and Develop
America’s Transportation Essential Act on December 3, 2013. The committee, commonly referred to as the
Committee of Ways and Means, has no cosponsors. The bill would increase the
federal excise tax on gasoline to 33.3 cents per gallon after 2015, and before
2025 diesel fuel could raise to 39.3 cents per gallon. MRAA is lobbying in
opposition to H.R. 3636 — a federal gas or diesel tax increase.
