Without Gas in the Tank, Senate Stays Course on Highways
from Roll Call
Senate Republicans are confident they'll take up a highway extension this week — though the bill's duration and pay-for are still up in the air. Senators from both parties are mulling suggestions that range from a kick-the-can plan to fund the highway account through the 2016 elections to a more ambitious proposal that would include a short-term patch linked to a major tax overhaul designed to fund a full six-year extension.
