House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Holds First Hearing
Last week the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee held its first infrastructure-related hearing of the new Congress, titled “The Cost of Doing Nothing: Why Investing in Our Nation’s Infrastructure Cannot Wait.” (You can view the hearing here.) The hearing lasted a full day and covered a wide range of important subjects, including how to find a sustainable funding source for the Highway Trust Fund and the potential for raising the gas tax. (You can read more about the hearing here and here.)
Ranking Member Sam Graves (R-MO) wrote this opinion piece in The Hill on the potential for bipartisan work on infrastructure. The committee hearing comes just days after President Trump again called on Congress to produce an infrastructure package in his State of the Union address.
