New Transportation Bill Falls Short


RR052319 HighwayBillJuly 29, 2019 – A bipartisan group of U.S. senators is going to introduce the $287 billion America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act of 2019. The bill is the largest highway legislation in history. And it is nowhere near enough. Ninety percent of that money would automatically go to states, so every community can have its needs met in red states and blue states alike, the senators say. America's economy relies heavily on the nation's roads and bridges. We need that trillion-dollar bill that has been talked about and not acted upon. I commend the senators for a good start. But again, it's not enough.
