WASHINGTON, DC – Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Chairman of the Environment & Public Works Committee, responded today to comments made by House Majority Whip Tom Delay in regards to the Senate Highway bill: “Having just read the news release of my dear friend of 18 years, I have concluded that he has not read the Senate Highway Reauthorization Bill. In his five paragraph release, not one of the statements is true, not one. “There are no ‘tax increases’ in the senate bill. There is no ‘fuzzy math’ in the Senate bill. No other programs are ‘being robbed’ in the Senate bill. The Senate Highway bill contains no ‘pork’. That is unprecedented in the history of transportation reauthorization bills. Lastly, this is the only highway bill that sticks to a formula.”
