WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement after the House passed the Highway and Transportation Funding Act (H.R. 2353) to extend highway and transit program authority through July 31st:

“While I’m pleased the House has passed a bill to extend these critical infrastructure programs through the start of the summer driving season, I also share in the frustration of many of my colleagues that we have not yet reached a long-term plan to address the solvency of the Highway Trust Fund.   Our efforts to find a path forward will continue, and I am hopeful that both sides can work together on a long-term solution.”
