More Time for a Long-Term Highway Solution

Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy released the following statement on House passage of H.R. 3038, the Highway Transportation Funding Act of 2015:

“The House continues to move closer to a long-term highway bill. However, to keep highway funding from lapsing while still allowing enough time to negotiate a long-term solution, we need a short-term extension. This bill will give Congress the time it needs to do the job. I urge the Senate to pass this bill as soon as possible and keep our highways funded.”
