Leaders of three Senate committees that oversee transportation are calling for colleagues to work together to address the Highway Trust Fund shortfall that is expected to occur after the current funding law expires on Sept. 30, 2014.

“A strong transportation system is vital to ensuring the economic competitiveness of the United States and this requires maintaining federal investments in our transportation infrastructure,” Sens. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., Jay Rockefeller, D-W. Va., and Tim Johnson, D-S.D., wrote in a letter to colleagues. “We must work together in a bipartisan way to address this challenge, find a dependable source of sustainable funding for the HTF, and keep the nation’s transportation systems strong.”
