Washington, D.C. —  “President Bush’s signature on the highway bill literally paves the way for job creation in America. This new highway bill ensures that user fees Americans pay at the pump will be efficiently spent to strengthen our transportation infrastructure. While recent Congresses failed to pass a highway bill, this new Senate delivered, providing a bill that protects rural states’ funding levels. As a member of the conference committee, I was proud to help deliver a significant increase in South Dakota’s highway funding. With today’s Presidential Action, South Dakotans will soon be driving on safer and more efficient roads, improving the flow of commerce across our state.” – Senator John Thune
