Hultgren Supports Equal Transit Benefits for Mass-Transit Commuters

Congressman Randy Hultgren
February 19, 2015


Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) has joined seven of his colleagues as an original cosponsor of H.R. 990, the Commuter Parity Act, a bill to restore the transit benefits for mass-transit commuters to the same level as parking benefits, from $130 to $235 per month. Rep. Hultgren led Congressional efforts to restore such benefits during previous transportation reauthorization negotiations, and in November joined an Illinois delegation in urging committee leadership to include such benefits in any tax extenders package.

“The Commuter Parity Act will restore real transportation options to the consumer. As a former commuter to and from Chicago, I understand the importance of providing equalized benefits among mass-transit users and those that drive to work,” said Rep. Hultgren. “Providing commuters who use mass transit the same benefits as drivers can help relieve road traffic and save workers money and time, and at no extra cost to the taxpayer, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation. This bill ensures that mass-transit commuters are put on a level playing field with drivers, allowing workers to determine how best to get to work.”
