[ARCHIVED] Bipartisan Agreement to Increase Highway User Revenue Funding Passes Unanimously on Sine Die

HUR pic 2.22.22

With less than 3 hours left in the 2022 legislative session, the House of Delegates voted unanimously to pass House Bill 1187 to fully restore municipal highway user revenue funding to pre-Recession levels. In fact, the bill includes historically high funding for municipalities starting in FY 2024. 

Under this agreement, the share of transportation funding for local jurisdictions will increase from 13.5% to 15.5% in FY24, and by FY27, the percentage will increase to 20%. 

Municipalities will receive 2.4% of that starting in FY24 (an increase from current level of 2%); that amount will rise to 2.7% in FY25, hitting a record high of 3% in FY26 and FY27, then levelling back off at 2.4% for FY28 and beyond. Without action, municipal funding would have dropped to 0.4% in FY24. 

MML is grateful to Governor Hogan, House and Senate leadership, and our House and Senate sponsors Delegate Anderton and Senator McCray for their support. Many thanks to the MML Executive Board, MML Legislative Committee, and all the MML members who testified, wrote letters, shared their pictures and stories, and advocated for this important piece of legislation!
