WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement today after voting to ensure important transportation safety and road maintenance projects as scheduled. The Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2015 (H.R. 2353), passed the House 381-35 with bipartisan support, extending funding for transportation projects through the end of July.
“This bill enables safety improvement and paving projects across our country to move forward as planned,” McMorris Rodgers said. For American families around the country, the summer road construction period is an essential time for building and maintaining our road infrastructure. “Our roads must be safe and well maintained; it is essential to our economy and our way of life.”
