Hill Statement on Highway Bill
Today, after the U.S. House of Representatives voted to go to conference with the Senate on a comprehensive, six-year highway bill, Congressman French Hill (AR-2) released the following statement:
"Stop-gap, temporary highway bills are never a good solution. The American people deserve certainty from their elected officials that we can provide long-term authorization for planning our crucial infrastructure needs. Up-to-date roads, highways, and bridges are needed for economic development, and today we cleared a major hurdle in delivering that certainty. As this process moves on, I will work to pass a bill that supports needed infrastructure improvements with minimal burden on the hardworking American taxpayers."
