Woodall Statement On Highway & Transportation Funding Act
Today, U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (GA 07) issued the following statement with regard to his support of the House-passed measure, H.R. 3038, the “Highway and Transportation Funding Act.” The measure extends expenditure authority of the Highway Trust Fund (HTF) through December 18, 2015, while also authorizing appropriations for highway safety programs.
“America needs the certainty of a long-term surface transportation bill, and this legislation creates a bridge to achieve that goal without pulling the rug out from under existing projects across the country,” said Rep. Woodall. “I see the pathway to a long-term reauthorization that resolves the funding gaps and guarantees predictability – and this bill provides the time to do it the right way.”
Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes the majority of Gwinnett and Forsyth counties, and currently serves as Chairman of the Rules Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process, as well as serving on the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and Budget Committee.
