Obama administration floats draft plan to tax cars by the mile

(By Pete Kasperowicz, The Hill) - The Obama administration has floated a transportation authorization bill that would require the study and implementation of a plan to tax automobile drivers based on how many miles they drive.

The plan is a part of the administration's Transportation Opportunities Act, an undated draft of which was obtained this week by 'Transportation Weekly'.

The White House, however, said the bill is only an early draft that was not formally circulated within the administration.
