Washington, D.C. -- Today, Senators Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Chairman of the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, and Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Ranking Member, thanked 31 national associations and construction trade unions that sent a letter to all Senators calling for a multi-year transportation bill. The letter noted that the unanimous approval of the EPW Committee’s DRIVE Act should “ignite an aggressive push to complete action on a full bill this month.”

 Senators Inhofe and Boxer said:  “This letter is a sensible yet urgent call to action.  Our nation’s future as an economic power is at stake.  No more excuses – let us pass the six-year Environment and Public Works Committee transportation bill, and pass it now.”
