As cars become more fuel-efficient and fewer people drive, states are faced with a problem: How to continue funding crucial transportation and infrastructure projects with diminishing revenues from state gasoline taxes.
 
In February, the Virginia legislature met this challenge head on. Lawmakers there passed a transportation reform bill that The Washington Post called “historic.” To discuss the bipartisan legislation, NCSL’s Jon Kuhl interviewed Virginia House Speaker Bill Howell.
