AASHTO applauds President Obama, Chairman Camp Transportation investment proposals

The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials Executive Director Bud Wright commented on proposals announced that would use tax reform strategies to invest in transportation infrastructure.

"We are encouraged by both President Obama's proposed four-year, $302 billion transportation bill and Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp's proposal to dedicate $126.5 billion to the Highway Trust Fund. We look forward to working with the Administration and Congress on a new surface transportation bill," said Wright. "The crisis facing the Highway Trust Fund and our national transportation infrastructure is very real. It is good news that the Administration and Congressional leadership in both houses are looking seriously at strategies to invest in transportation and maintain the solvency of the Highway Trust Fund and the programs it supports."
