Coalition for a Prosperous Future

North Carolina currently faces significant challenges to maintain and improve statewide transportation, especially as the growing population places increased demand on the transportation system. Forecasts show that by 2018, gas tax revenues (which make up 70% of the state’s transportation revenue) will peak and start declining. Over the next 10 years, the state will produce about $2 billion less in necessary transportation revenues due to declining gas tax dollars. Investing in the transportation system is crucial for quality of life and economic growth, and will yield a significant return on investment as it provides a resource for years to come.

CantAffordtoWaitThe North Carolina Chamber is proactively working to address the long-term transportation challenges in our state. We have developed the Coalition for a Prosperous Future to join the voices of key stakeholders throughout the broad-based business community with other aligned organizations to advance comprehensive solutions around this critical issue.
