Shimkus Supports Long-Term Transportation Bill


WASHINGTON – November 5, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — After more than 20 hours of debate and consideration of 126 amendments, Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) voted in support of a long-term transportation infrastructure bill on Thursday.

The nation’s surface transportation system is comprised of more than 4 million miles of public roads, 600,000 bridges, and 270,000 public transit route miles. Federal programs to maintain this system are primarily funded through taxes on motor fuels that are deposited into the Highway Trust Fund. States are required to provide matching funds for each project.
