AUSTIN — Members of the House Transportation Committee – including Chairman Terry Canales and Vice Chairman Brooks Landgraf – will hold a press conference at the State Capitol on Wednesday, April 24, calling on Congress to assure Texas gets its fair share of federal transportation funding.
According to the Federal Highway Administration, in federal fiscal year 2019, Texas is the only "donor" state, receiving only 95 cents back for every dollar it sends to Washington in federal fuel taxes. House Concurrent Resolution 147, authored by Landgraf, urges Congress to work collectively toward a fair, equitable, and logical approach to federal transportation funding in any new federal transportation legislation that is considered.
