Opposition has argued that the effects would be too severe for the Swedish industries. Throughout the soon 20 year old long process, have there been two windows of opportunity. The first has passed due to new government and the lacking of useful solution. Today new government is in place and problem definitions changed mainly to road wear which has opened a second window. New committee is appointed. Interest groups have been critical to the tax and to the exclusion of non-political actors in the process. (Less)
