Perlmutter Statement on Highway Trust Fund
Media Contact: Danielle Radovich Piper - (303) 274-7944
U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter released the following statement after voting no on a short-term extension of the Highway Trust Fund:
“Authorizing a two-month extension for the Highway Trust Fund is no way to govern. Republicans have had 10 months to develop a long-term plan and the best they came up with is a two-month extension. A multi-year surface transportation reauthorization is needed to provide certainty allowing for long-term planning and safety upgrades especially as we hit the critical summer construction season. It’s time to stand up and pass a 5-6 year surface transportation reauthorization bill with a dedicated long-term funding source for the Highway Trust Fund. Infrastructure is a key ingredient for job creation and it is no secret we are not adequately investing in our country’s infrastructure needs.”
