Larson on Passage of Transportation and Veterans Bill

July 29, 2015
Press Release

Washington – “While I am loath to support another stopgap measure to prevent a lapse in funding for the Highway Trust Fund, this current three-month extension includes vital funding for the VA healthcare system. I voted in favor of this bill to ensure the VA is fully equipped to provide the care our veterans desperately need. I was also proud to see the inclusion of a measure I have long championed to promote clean energy by lowering taxes on natural gas fuel. It is my sincere hope that Congress will now use the next three months to make the hard choices and pass a long-term transportation bill to fund our highways, roads and bridges.”
