WASHINGTON — On Tuesday, President Barack Obama travels to the Washington suburb of McLean, Va. to deliver remarks on the need for Congress to pass the Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014.From the White House: “With surface transportation funding running out and hundreds of thousands of jobs at risk later this summer, the Administration supports House passage of H.R. 5021. This legislation would provide for continuity of funding for the Highway Trust Fund during the height of the summer construction season and keep Americans at work repairing the Nation’s crumbling roads, bridges, and transit systems.”
