Second Study On Transporatation Fees & Taxes To Be Conducted

Idaho is going back to the drawing board for a study to determine if owners of heavy trucks and cars are paying their fair share for roads. An earlier study suggested heavy trucks underpay and owners of cars and pickups pay too much in transportation fees and taxes.

Now the state is going to try again, only using different study methods.Here's the story.
