House And Senate Debate Separate Highway Bills

The House votes today on a patch to keep federal highway and transit aid going to states, ahead of leaving tomorrow for August recess.

In the Senate, there’s debate over a long-term bill. Some senators are criticizing House members for not taking up a long-term funding bill – there hasn’t been one in 10 years.

Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson speaks with Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo of Florida about the three-month patch the House is proposing, and what it means for the country.
