Feb 26, 2014, 15:21 ET from American Trucking Associations

ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, American Trucking Associations' President and CEO Bill Graves issued the following statement on the Highway Trust Fund funding proposals put forth by President Obama and House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.).

"It is heartening that both President Obama and Chairman Camp recognize the critical need for revenue to finance infrastructure improvements. While a sustainable source of long-term, funding would be preferable, given the apparent reluctance to embrace traditional, user-funded revenue streams, ATA is prepared to keep an open mind when looking at financing options for the Highway Trust Fund."
