Representative Earl 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.
