What's The [Data] Point? Episode 74 -- 1.28 cents, Patrick Orecki [You can download What's The [Data] Point? wherever you get your podcasts, including on iTunes]
New York State is underfunding upkeep of its roads and bridges to the tune of billions of dollars a year. There are several reasons for this, and potential fixes, including a vehicle-miles traveled fee, which Citizens Budget Commission's Patrick Orecki recently explored in a CBC report. He joined the podcast to explain the state of disrepair, why it matters, and how a smartly-done VMT could make a big difference.
Then, after that 20-minute conversation, hear a recent panel event that CBC and partners hosted in Albany on the prospect of a VMT.
