The Highway Bill
Senator Harry Reid
Congressional Record: 114th Congress
July 22, 2015
Mr. REID. Mr. President, I am having a caucus today. We have the bill. We worked through the night. I wasn't up all night, but my staff was. I did spend quite a bit of time on this bill. I think we have a basic understanding of it. I am having a caucus today, and we will have my ranking members from Finance, Commerce, Energy, and Banking report on how they look at this bill.
It is my hope that we can work our way through all the issues dealing with this legislation. I think the main reason we are where we are now is we have focused on the importance of a long-term highway bill. So I hope we can work our way through these issues. There are some significant issues, I have already been alerted by my staff, with the transit title. Some of the pay-fors are somewhat questionable. But before we start drawing lines in the sand here, let's see if we can figure out a way to get this done. So we will know that sometime early this afternoon.
