TTV News Special Report--Highway Trust Fund Crisis: Countdown to July 31

The Federal Highway Trust Fund is in financial trouble and that fact has led to uncertainty among state transportation departments across the country. This week AASHTO Transportation TV broadcasts a special report called Highway Trust Fund Crisis --Countdown to July 31. Legislation authorizing funding for federal highway and transit programs expired last year.  Instead of passing a new surface transportation bill Congress has approved two short-term extensions—the second of which will expire on July thirty-first.  This report examines the crisis and the many ways AASHTO is communicating the urgent need to find a long-term solution.
