McConnell, Boxer Announce Agreement on Multi-Year Highway Bill

‘After months of discussion and a lot of cooperation from chairmen and ranking members, and staffs and members from both sides of the aisle, I’m happy to announce that Sen. Boxer and I have an agreement for a multi-year, bipartisan highway bill.’

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor today regarding the bipartisan Drive Act:

“After months of discussion and a lot of cooperation from chairmen and ranking members, and staffs and members from both sides of the aisle, I’m happy to announce that Sen. Boxer and I have an agreement for a multi-year, bipartisan highway bill. We will now discuss that with our conferences at the lunches.

“This is a six-year highway authorization that will allow planning for important long-term projects around the country, and the bill provides three years of guaranteed funding for the highway trust fund.

“Senators from both parties know that a long-term highway bill is in the best interest of our country. So we’ll continue working together to get a good one passed. Thanks to the dedication of both Republican and Democratic Senators and their staffs, I’m hopeful we will.

“I thank the many members on both sides of the aisle who helped get us as far as we’ve already gotten today. In particular I’d like to thank Chairmen Inhofe, Hatch, Thune and Shelby for their efforts to reach a bipartisan accomplishment.”
