Schumer Statement On Senate’s Bipartisan Highway Bill

Washington, D.C. – Senator Charles E. Schumer released the following statement Tuesday in response to House Speaker John Boehner’s comments that he is open to bringing up the Senate’s bipartisan highway bill:

“Senate Republicans have been using amendments to delay this bipartisan highway bill until Speaker Boehner could figure out a path for dealing with it in the House. Now that the Speaker has publicly signaled he is willing to buck his conservative bloc and give the Senate bill a vote, momentum is on our side. Senate Republicans have no reason to drag this out any longer.”
