Equalizing Benefits for Drivers, Mass-Transit Users

Congressman Randy Hultgren
Hultgren Huddle
March 7, 2015


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. Doing so can help relieve road traffic and save workers money and time, and is at no extra cost to the taxpayer, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.

I cosponsored the Commuter Parity Act, which would restore the transit benefits for mass-transit commuters to the same level as parking benefits. Previously, I led Congressional efforts to restore such benefits during previous transportation reauthorization negotiations, and in November I joined an Illinois delegation in urging committee leadership to include such benefits in any tax extenders package.

Also, I joined nearly 300 of my colleagues in urging House leadership on both sides of the aisle to find a multi-year surface transportation solution which includes a long-term, sustainable funding stream for the Highway Trust Fund, which is set to expire at the end of May.
