WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement after the House passed the Highway and Transportation Funding Act (H.R. 3038) to extend highway and transit program authority through the end of the year:

“Rebuilding our roads, bridges, and tunnels is critical to growing our economy.  This bipartisan action will keep construction workers on the job, and pave the way for further efforts on a long-term infrastructure plan.  I appreciate the work Chairman Ryan and Chairman Shuster are doing to deliver certainty and stability for America’s commuters and workers.”
