To address the deteriorating condition of America’s roads, researchers at Texas A&M University say that instead of a series of one-time fixes, a more permanent solution is needed to provide the Highway Trust Fund (HTF) with sufficient revenues to keep up with increasing needs: a vehicle mileage tax (VMT) on commercial vehicles and a higher gas tax on private vehicles.

Not only should the United States lift its ban on exporting oil and natural gas in light of today’s economic and political climate, but it was wrong to ever ban such exports in the first place, contend two top scholars at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University.

Government assistance programs like Medicaid, Food Stamps, and home heating aid all play an important role in the war against poverty; but that assistance is poorly targeted, say two scholars from The Mosbacher Institute for Trade, Economics, and Public Policy at the Bush School of Government and Public Service, located at Texas A&M University.
