Statement of Secretary Foxx on Senate Highway Trust Fund Vote

Washington, D.C.-(ENEWSPF)- Secretary Anthony Foxx of the US Department of Transportation issued the following statement on the US Senate’s bi-partisan Highway Trust Fund vote:

"I applaud the Senate’s strong bipartisan vote, which sends a clear message that we need action on a long-term transportation bill this year, and reaffirms that Democrats and Republicans can come together to do it. There is no reason to delay the real debate about long-term funding and badly needed policy updates until we reach another crisis point, which could be May 2015 and at the beginning of the next construction season."
