House Members Sign Letter Seeking Long-Term Fix to HTF

Earlier this month, more than 250 House members sent a letter to the House Committee on Ways and Means leaders requesting a long-term fix to the Highway Trust Fund (HTF) as part of a tax reform package. The letter emphasized the importance of resolving the issue before the FAST Act expires in 2020. It also stated that any solution should include a long-term, dedicated, user-based revenue stream that is supported across party lines but did not specifically call for a gas-tax increase. The letter was led by Sam Graves (R-MO) and Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit.
