Green Envy

By  | 

A greener commute is making for less green when it comes to highway funding.

With more people using vehicles that run on alternative fuels, the state's Department of Transportation says it's losing several million dollars a year.

Colorado traditionally receives about $600 million every year from gas tax revenues.

A bill is currently going through Congress that would establish a task force to study other ways to pay for highways, including taxing tires or miles traveled.
