Congressman Young Shares Statement on Highway Funding Extension


WASHINGTON, D.C. – July 16, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Alaska Congressman Don Young, former Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, released the following statement after House passage of H.R. 3038, the Highway Transportation Funding Act of 2015:

“As the Chairman of the House Transportation Committee when the last long-term highway funding bill was enacted, I can personally attest to how difficult it is to construct such a package. Our nation will always need federal funds for roads and bridges, which is why I believe it makes sense to craft a multiyear package that gives federal and state transportation departments the ability to plan vital, long term projects. There’s no question, under the current fiscal environment, Congress will struggle to find funding sources to keep the Highway Trust Fund solvent. I will continue to work with my colleagues in the committees of jurisdiction, along with their staffs, to tackle the considerable challenge we face in finding a fiscally responsibly method to pay for these projects. I applaud and thank Chairman Bill Shuster, Chairman Paul Ryan, and House leadership for considering all reasonable options to reach our goal.”
