Today, U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), top Republican on the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, joined Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Chairman of the EPW Committee, Tom Carper (D-Del.), Chairman of the Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee, and John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Ranking Member of the Subcommittee, to announce the principle agreement on a bipartisan transportation reauthorization bill.
"It's about time to put trust into the Highway Trust Fund, and as we move forward, we will stay focused on a long-term reauthorization bill that invests in rural areas, and expanding flexibility for state and local governments," said Vitter.
