More Groups Advocating For Highway Bill, Infrastructure Push Congress

A coalition of nearly 40 prominent infrastructure stakeholders has urged the powerful Republican leader of the U.S. Senate to set up consideration for a comprehensive highway bill this year.

In their letter to Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), the coalition emphasized that an inability to pass a new bill is likely to pave the way for the approval of short-term policy extensions, a scenario they want to avoid.
