Geithner: Congress Should Pass Long-term Highway Bill

April 5, 2012

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is urging Congress to pass a long-term highway bill "to help speed the recovery" and lay the foundation for stronger future growth.

The Hill's Transportation Blog reports Geithner told the Economic Club of Chicago that long-term investments in infrastructure are crucial to keeping the country competitive: "To make us more competitive, we have to be willing to make larger long-term investments in infrastructure, not just limp forward with temporary extensions."
