Key Vote Alert – “YES” on Lee Amdt (S. 1702) to Highway Bill (HR 5021)



“YES” on Lee Amdt (S. 1702) to Highway Bill (HR 5021)

The Club for Growth urges all Senators to support Sen. Mike Lee’s amendment (S. 1702) to the highway bill (HR 5021) that would dramatically reduce the federal gas tax and return transportation authority back to the states.  A vote is expected next week.  This vote will be included in the Club for Growth’s 2014 Congressional Scorecard.

Most transportation spending is already done at the local and state level, where it is most accountable and most efficient.  Adding another layer of bureaucracy and heavy-handed mandates at the federal level only wastes more tax dollars. Especially when politicians often allocate money based on political decisions rather than what’s best for all taxpayers.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 113th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
