U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna (NY-24), Vice Chairman of the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit today issued the following statement:
"I commend both Chairman Boxer and Chairman Mica for their unwavering commitment to produce a bipartisan transportation bill that includes the most significant policy reforms in decades. This legislation will improve our economic competitiveness, help create jobs and ensure hard-earned tax dollars are more wisely spent. Today's agreement shows just how much we can accomplish when we put aside partisan bickering, listen to ideas from both sides, and work together to find common ground.
"I look forward to taking this landmark bill to the finish line and sending it to the President's desk for his signature."
