Oberstar Wants No Delays In Road Projects

Minnesota Congressman Jim Oberstar says he is going to push against the White House to pass a bill funding road and bridge projects. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is concerned about the price tag of the six year transportation funding bill. Oberstar said the 18 month delay proposed by the administration is unacceptable because it will keep states from moving ahead with important road projects.

Oberstar is chairman of the house committee on transportation and infrastructure. He has been working on a new surface transportation bill with House Republicans for the last two years and expects to introduce a bipartisan bill next week.
