GOP Rep Praises Trump on Infrastructure Plan, Floats Gas Tax as Funding Option

House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster said President Trump is correct to propose a sweeping infrastructure improvement plan.

"The highway trust fund is going to go broke," he said, calling the gas tax more of a "user fee" than a traditional tax. Shuster pointed to Interstate 81, a major car travel and trucking route, which runs through his district before crossing into Maryland near Greencastle.
