Highway Revenues Apportionment
Highway Revenues Apportionment
Highway revenues in the State of Oregon have several major sources:
  • Motor Vehicle Registration and Title Fees.
  • Driver License Fees
  • Motor Vehicle Fuel Taxes.
  • Weight-Mile Tax.
Net revenues from the above taxes and fees are deposited into an account known as the State Highway Fund.  With minor exceptions, the Oregon Constitution (Article IX, Section 3a) dedicates the highway revenues for the construction, improvement, maintenance, operation and use of public highways, roads, streets and roadside rest areas.  There are several statutory provisions that distribute State Highway Fund revenues (Oregon Revised Statutes - 2011).  These are:
  • ORS 366.739, distributing revenue raised by taxes and fees in effect prior to 2001.
  • ORS 366.742, distributing revenue raised by tax and fee increases authorized in 2001.
  • ORS 366.747 and 366.749, distributing revenue raised by tax and fee increases authorized in 2003.
  • ORS 366.752, distributing revenue raised by tax and fee increases authorized in 2009.
 
The effect of the statutory provisions is summarized in the table below.

State 59%
Counties 25% Vehicles Registered in Each County (ORS 366.764)
Cities 16% Population in Each City (ORS 366.805)
