Transportation Secretary Calls For Trust Fund Extension

(Parsippany, NJ) -- Democratic lawmakers are looking for a long-term plan to fix the nation's crumbling infrastructure. A ten-month extension for the expiring Highway Trust Fund is making its way through Congress now, which Senator Bob Menendez calls a band-aid. Standing in front of an Interstate 80-project in Parsippany, New Jersey today, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx called for a four-year, 302-billion-dollar plan. Democrats propose paying for it by raising the gas tax and eliminating some corporate tax breaks.
