Earlier this month, House Republicans passed a bill which would solve the Highway Trust Fund cash-influx problem on a very short-term basis. It is critical that Congress finds a long-term solution to the financial crisis plaguing the nation’s highway funding issues. Failure to do so could lead to an untold number of otherwise preventable car accidents.
No matter what your political views are, you likely have read that the nation’s highways and bridges are aging and many are in dire need of repair. Many member of Congress disagree about how the nation’s Highway Trust Fund should be saved from insolvency, but it needs to be saved nonetheless.
