Brookings Institution: Robert Puentes: 'Transportation Bill Is Critical for America's Productivity and Competitiveness'

Source:Brookings Institution- Senior Fellow Robert Puentes.

"Millions of jobs and countless projects from coast-to-coast depend on funding from the federal transportation bill, which, if lawmakers fail to act, expires on June 30. Talks in the House and Senate continue on tough issues such as the Keystone XL pipeline and gasoline taxes and some are calling for another extension of the legislation to keep the money flowing. In this Expert Q&A video, Senior Fellow Robert Puentes says an extension is likely but reauthorization is desperately needed.

Robert Puentes: From our roads, to our bridges, to our railways, the federal highway bill is critical for Americas productivity and competitiveness. States and metros should be able to rely on federal support as they innovate and grow."
