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.
