U.S. House reps sign bipartisan letter seeking Highway Trust Fund solution

U.S. House reps sign bipartisan letter seeking Highway Trust Fund solution

Progressive Railroading
June 20, 2017

More than half of U.S. House members have signed a letter calling for a long-term funding solution to maintain the Highway Trust Fund.

Signed by 253 House members from both parties, the letter was sent June 12 to the chairman and ranking member of the House Committee on Ways and Means. The letter seeks a "long-term dedicated, user-based revenue stream" to maintain the trust fund's solvency.

Drafted by Reps. Sam Graves (R-Mo.), who chairs the Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Highways and Transit, and Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C), the subcommittee's ranking member, the letter asks the Ways and Means Committee to include the Highway Trust Fund's long-term funding as part of a major overhaul of tax laws.

"The president has made rebuilding our transportation network a priority, and rightfully so," said Graves in a press release. "But, instead of thinking a one-time $1 trillion investment would solve our long-term infrastructure problems, my focus is on making sure we're being responsible in how we plan for and fund projects in the future."

I think I might by no means understand. It seems too
complex and very extensive for me. I'm taking a look ahead on your next publish, I'll try to get the hold of it!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be
giving us something informative to read?
