Westerman Discusses National Infrastructure Week

May 14, 2015

It is National Infrastructure Week and with focus on infrastructure funding, I would like to let you at home know that I am working hard to find ways to keep the Federal Highway Trust Fund financed for the long-term and Arkansas roads paved. I introduced legislation in March that would exempt federal highway trust fund dollars from paying local sales tax on projects, focusing those funds on actually constructing and maintaining our roads and bridges. In the coming weeks, I will introduce additional legislation that would add $15 billion per year and fully fund the trust fund without raising taxes. Be sure to follow me on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date on this and other legislation impacting Arkansans like you.
