Congratulations to all of those who contacted your Senators regarding the Paul Amendment which would have redirected TE funds to bridge repair. The amendment was soundly defeated. Senators Crapo and Risch of Idaho voted for the amendment. Cantwell and Murray of Washington voted against the amendment.
How long before we see further attacks on TE funding? No idea, but I’d better sooner rather than later. And Ray LaHood is retiring soon, too.
Thanks to all of you who contacted your Senators, Senator Rand Paul’s (R-KY) amendment that would have diverted Transportation Enhancement funds to bridge repairs, was soundly defeated.
