 Below is Professor Shaw's "Letter to the Editor" comment published in Virginian Pilot (Wednesday, October 29, 2015) regarding the use of minor sales tax increase versus existing/future tunnel tolls:

“TAX MORE TO PAY LESS” (W. Sheppard Miller guest column, Oct. 25, 2015):

As a business professor, I agree with Miller’s argument for getting rid of tolls at several Hampton Roads projects and replacing them with a 0.7-cent increase in the state sales tax. In addition to the reasons Miller cites, the sales tax would be a better vehicle to track inflation in the revenue stream to pay for our badly needed highway infrastructure needs. After all, we already pay a state sales tax to help fund most transportation needs in Virginia. Miller cites the findings of Old Dominion University professor James V. Koch’s recent State of the Region report. I agree with Koch’s conclusions. Funding badly needed highway infrastructure is a key building block to expanding our regional economy. For the most part, regional and   state sales tax revenue will be recycled back into the Virginia and Hampton Roads economies when it is spent on infrastructure. Toll revenue for the Midtown and Downtown tunnels will be spent on the tunnel and road operating costs, paying the bond holders (most of whom are not in this area) and the profits to the foreign company that manages the tunnels. Miller’s ideas make a lot of economic sense for our region.
