WASHINGTON, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx will give a speech about the Highway Trust Fund and the need to increase transportation infrastructure funding at a National Press Club Speakers luncheon on July 21.
In the midst of last-minute congressional efforts to avoid a shortfall in the Highway Trust Fund, Foxx will speak about the need for long-term transportation investment, arguing that the ongoing lack of certainty and stability poses an even greater threat to the country's ability to grow.
