Renewal of Highway Trust Fund in peril

Per Chad Pergram:

House Republicans are doubling-down on the reauthorization of the Highway Trust Fund. The House GOP leadership is insistent it will not take the Senate-version of the bill…which only re-ups the plan through December, not May of next year. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer (D-CA) was insistent that the House do that. And time is running short…which means the Highway Trust Fund may go belly-up in August…and it could cost the economy 800,000 construction jobs.

The Speaker’s Office says it will in essence ignore the Senate-approved plan and re-pass its version of the bill tomorrow.

From Mike Steel, spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH):

“The Senate-passed highway bill contains a critical error, and is not fully offset through December 19. The only responsible course is for the Senate to pass the original House-passed highway bill, which we will soon send back to them.”
