Foxx Hits the Road
Foxx Hits Road to Promote Transportation Spending
Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx warned that gridlock in Congress threatens critical infrastructure projects around Louisville, Ky., and Nashville, Tenn., two of the cities he visited this week on an eight-state bus tour. Foxx began the trip April 14 in Ohio and was in Louisville and Nashville the next day, touting President Obama’s transportation investment plan and calling attention to the tottering Highway Trust Fund. DOT expects the trust fund to fall into the red by late August, meaning its payment obligations will be greater than available cash.
