WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, released the following statement after the House of Representatives advanced legislation by a bipartisan 312-119 vote to authorize and finance our highway and transit programs through the end of the year.

“This extension brings us one step closer to a final agreement. It provides the House more time to negotiate a multi-year agreement to finance our highway and transit programs. Without it, current projects would be stopped in their tracks. I will continue to work in a bipartisan basis with my colleagues as we aim to provide the stability that our highway program needs and towards improving our roads, bridges, and other critical infrastructure.”
