Highway Bill House Talks Long Term Funding Senate Releases Draft

first_imgThe House Ways & Means Committee held a hearing to discuss various options for funding a new long-term surface transportation bill last week.  Among the options discussed at the hearing, were an increase in the federal gas tax and using money derived from revisions to tax policy such as repatriation of corporate income earned overseas.Ways & Means Chairman Paul Ryan stated his opposition to increasing the gas tax, while Bill Graves, head of the American Trucking Associations, argued in favor of raising the gas tax, which has been unchanged since 1993. Many Democrats on the Ways & Means Committee expressed support for considering all options, including a gas tax increase.Gas and diesel tax receipts no longer cover what is needed to meet spending demands. Since 2008, Congress has supplemented the highway trust fund revenue with more than $65 billion of funding from the general treasury. However, under congressional budget-scoring rules, those transfers have to be offset with savings or cuts in other areas that are difficult to find.Robert Poole, a transportation expert with the Reason Foundation, a libertarian think-tank, testified at the hearing that the federal government should scale back its role to focus first on reconstruction and modernization of the interstate highway system and that Congress should encourage a shift away from reliance on fuel taxes to a system tied to the amount that individuals drive.Meanwhile, the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee this week released, marked-up, and passed their draft Highway Bill, which calls for $278 billion over six years. The bill (S.1647) titled the DRIVE Act faces an uncertain future as the Senate Finance Committee will need to identify over $100 billion in new revenue to support the Highway Trust Fund to cover the costs of the bill. The EPW Committee did not identify the funding source to cover the cost of the bill and several other Senate Committees that have jurisdiction over the bill and its funding have not acted yet.last_img read more

Commerce Department Imposes Preliminary Antidumping Determination on Biodiesel Imports

first_imgThis week, the U.S. Department of Commerce issued a preliminary determination on the antidumping trade case filed against biodiesel imports from Argentina and Indonesia. The preliminary determination found that biodiesel imports from Argentina and Indonesia are sold into the United States below fair value, and as a result preliminary duties will be imposed on imports from these countries based on the amount of dumping found.The National Biodiesel Board (NBB) Fair Trade Coalition filed these petitions to address a flood of subsidized and dumped imports from Argentina and Indonesia that has resulted in market share losses and depressed prices for domestic producers. Biodiesel imports from Argentina and Indonesia surged by 464 percent from 2014 to 2016, taking 18.3 percentage points of market share from U.S. manufacturers. Imports of biodiesel from Argentina again jumped 144.5 percent following the filing of the petitions.As a result of this week’s ruling, importers of Argentinian and Indonesian biodiesel will be required to pay cash deposits on biodiesel imported from those countries. The cash deposit rates range from 54.36 to 70.05 percent for biodiesel from Argentina, and 50.71 percent for biodiesel from Indonesia, depending on the particular foreign producer/exporter involved. The duty deposit requirements are in addition to the deposits required under the Commerce Department’s preliminary countervailing duty determination in August, which confirmed that biodiesel producers in Argentina and Indonesia have received significant subsidies.Between the preliminary and final antidumping determinations, the Commerce Department will audit the foreign producers to confirm the accuracy of their data submissions. Parties will file briefs on issues arising from the agency’s preliminary antidumping duty determinations, and the Commerce Department will hold a hearing, with a final antidumping determination due early next year. A final determination by the Commerce Department in the companion countervailing duty determination is due to be announced in early November, with a final determination by the International Trade Commission in connection with the countervailing duty case expected in December.last_img read more
