SD Senator Lobbies DC For Transportation Dollars

SD Senator Lobbies DC For Transportation Dollars
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota Sen. Mike Vehle has traveled to Washington D.C. to lobby for transportation dollars with a group from the National Conference of State Legislatures.

The Mitchell Republican is hoping Congress will approve a six-year transportation plan, which would make it easier for states to budget. Vehle is the state Senate Transportation Committee chairman.

The federal transportation fund is expected to go into the red later this summer.

The delegation included state-level lawmakers from eight states, including Oregon and Minnesota. They met with Congressional delegates and White House officials.

Vehle says the visits went well. He thinks the president's plan to fund transportation expenses with tax reform is probably a non-starter. And he hopes officials can come up with a back-up plan that will work for everyone.
