Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said on Monday the White House will not propose hiking gas taxes or a new vehicle miles traveled (VMT) fee to pay for a proposal to massively boost infrastructure spending.

Buttigieg told CNN a vehicle miles traveled fee is "not part of the conversation about this infrastructure bill."

He also told CNN a gas tax hike is not under consideration.

"I want to reiterate the president's central commitment here. If you're making less than $400,000 a year, this proposal will not involve a tax increase for you," he said.
