Congressman Petri Talks About Need To Sustain Highway Trust Fund

Congressman Tom Petri made an appeal yesterday before the House to find a viable way to sustain the Highway Trust Fund. The House passed a bill that will pay for current surface transportation provisions through May of next year, but Petri says the Highway Trust Fund will likely run out of money next month. He says Congress was kicking the can down the road again, avoiding one crisis while setting up another. The federal lawmaker from Fond du Lac says the Highway Trust Fund was self sufficient for close to 50 years, but that’s no longer the case. Although he supported the passage of the bill before the house yesterday, he said they need to take a look at a better way to fund the trust fund. The House passed the bill by a vote of 367 to 55. The Senate is considering its own version of the legislation. To see Petri’s floor speech click here.
