Boehner to unveil transportation bill

Boehner to unveil transportation bill – The Hill’s Transportation Report.

Today House Speaker John Boehner will propose a transportation bill which will pay for needed improvements to the nation’s infrastructure with revenues from increased offshore drilling and shale oil drilling.

According to the report above it has a good chance of being passed in the House but will run into opposition in the Senate.

We all know that our infrastructure is crumbling and funds need to come from somewhere to pay for repairs.

But sacrificing the environment to do this is not my idea of a good plan.

There’s got to be another way. Your thoughts?
