Bipartisan Support in House for Highway Trust Fund Fix

May 26, 2016

This week, 132 members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) and Ranking Democrat Sander Levin (Mich.) in support of fixing the Highway Trust Fund as part of comprehensive tax reform.  Thanks to the AGC members who met with their representatives during the TCC Fly-In or contacted their representatives asking them to sign the letter.

The future challenges facing the trust fund are well documented.  Although the FAST Act provides five years of funding certainty, it did not provide a permanent solution for the trust fund.  With this letter, Representatives Sam Graves (R-Mo.) and Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-District of Columbia) are seeking to begin the conversation of addressing Highway Trust Fund as part of tax reform.
