Crawford Votes to Extend Infrastructure Funding Through July

Uncategorized

Earlier today, Congressman Rick Crawford voted in support of H.R. 2353, The Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2015. H.R. 2353 will allow transportation spending to continue through July instead of the previous deadline, May 31. The clean extension will allow more time for consideration of a long-term highway bill. 

 Congressman Rick Crawford issued the following statement after the vote.

 “Our debt crisis continues to overextend precious resources for critical projects, like continued investment in our nation’s infrastructure. To be successful, a long-term solution must combine a consistent funding mechanism with financial transparency: our current system, through shortfalls and opaque applications of funding, has lost the trust of Americans, who don’t know where or how their tax dollars are being invested. Both the Transportation and Ways and Means Committees will have to consider new, creative funding alternatives to find a fiscally sustainable solution to this chronic problem.”
