Hultgren Supports Final Highway Bill

Congressman Randy Hultgren
December 3, 2015


Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) today supported House passage (359-65) of the Conference Report to H.R. 22, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, a five-year highway and transit bill produced by both Houses of Congress. For a full summary of the bill and Rep. Hultgren’s leadership on the issue, including securing key commitments from Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Shuster regarding funding for suburban areas, please click here.

“Like the version that the House passed last month, this bicameral legislation puts the needs of our communities and our country's long-term competitiveness first. Without a strong and sustainable infrastructure of roads, bridges and highways, we will continue to lose ground as our population continues to grow and businesses look for cost-effective and reliable modes of transport. Illinois is a key beneficiary of this long-term bill which will allow our local communities to plan years down the road for much-needed projects,” said Rep. Hultgren. “I look forward to the President signing this bicameral, bipartisan and fiscally responsible legislation to upgrade our regional transportation hub, and the entire nation.”

The last time a highway bill lasting longer than two years made it to the president's desk was 2005.

According to the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), Illinois stands to benefit from the FAST Act:

Estimated Highway Apportionments by state:

Illinois Rank = #6
FY 16-20 Total = $7,530,044,230
FY 16-20 Average Annual = $1,506,008,846
Illinois % of Total = 3.63%

Estimated Transit Apportionments by state:

Illinois Rank = #4
FY 16-20 Total = $2,987,521,165
FY 16-20 Average Annual = 597,504,233
Illinois % of Total = 6.44%
