AGC sent a letter this week to Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Robert Byrd (D-W.V.) in support of the infrastructure investment provisions contained in the Chairman’s second stimulus supplemental appropriations bill for fiscal year 2008. In particular, AGC expressed support for the Chairman’s proposal to address the impending Highway Trust Fund deficit by transferring $8 billion from the General Fund to the Highway Trust Fund. The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a stand-alone piece of legislation to accomplish the transfer in July.
