ARLINGTON, Va., July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) issued the following statement on the House Ways and Means Committee's approval today of H.R. 5021, the Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014, sponsored by Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.):
"NACD applauds Chairman Camp and cosponsor Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Pa.), chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, for demonstrating their commitment to finding alternative revenue streams for the dwindling Highway Trust Fund.
"While this bill is a step in the right direction, a more permanent solution is needed to ensure the solvency of our nation's federal highway program and provide certainty to the many industries that rely on a robust surface transportation network to create jobs and grow their businesses. NACD urges all parties involved to work together to find a lasting solution that maintains the Highway Trust Fund for years to come."
