A debate over a specific way to generate transportation funding dollars resurfaced during the third meeting of the state roads task on Thursday.
The discussion focused on funding sources. And an idea promoted by a Purdue expert testifying before the panel provoked debate among its members: specifically, the value of vehicle miles traveled, or VMT, fees.
In a VMT system, people pay for how many miles they drive.
Republican Sen. Brandt Hershman, (R-Buck Creek), says he has issues with using that type of fee to pay for roads.
