BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. McCONNELL. The problem with accepting the Boxer amendment is that it would shut down the Federal-Aid Highway Program, which means States wanting reimbursement for projects will not get paid. It will cause already nervous State Department of Transportation directors to cut back further on the work because there will be no reimbursements on Federal projects, and it would cost the highway trust fund $100 million per day for any day the gas tax is not collected, thereby adding to the deficit.

Therefore, I object.
