be able to agree on a four year bill and tax increases are probably out of the question.America needs a transportation bill. Without it, highways and bridge will continue to deteriorate. With it, significant improvements can be made. The economy would benefit from Converse All Star High Tops Blue

the jobs that would be funded by the bill; we'd all benefit from better roads.

The nation's infrastructure is falling apart; the federal gas tax, unchanged since 1993, no longer can keep up with the needs; and highway funding will disappear at the end of August anyway if Congress doesn't take action on a transportation bill soon.That's the gloomy scenario facing the states as Congress goes back to work with little Converse Rose Gold Shoes

hope of passing any major bills, no less the four year, $302 billion transportation unveiled by the Obama administration on Tuesday, by the end of the year.Without a bill, the federal Highway Trust Fund is expected to run out of money before the start of fiscal 2015, leaving the nation with no federal support for state projects to repair or replace aging highways.The result could be disaster.According to the Federal Highway Administration, nearly one tenth of the bridges in the National Bridge Inventory, more than 60,000 of 607,380 bridges, are "structurally compromised." That doesn't necessarily mean that the bridges are unsafe. It does mean that they need significant maintenance and repair to remain open, however, and eventually will need to be replaced.The worst case would be a repeat of the collapse of the Interstate 35W bridge in Minneapolis during rush hour on Aug. 1, 2007. Thirteen people Converse Rose Pink died and 145 were injured when the bridge gave way because of what was described as a design flaw (the bridge opened in 1967) and excess weight.In most cases, the impact of not funding infrastructure repairs is more mundane: slowed traffic, damage to vehicles and detours necessitated by the closure of substandard bridges or roads. In a state like Nevada, which depends on the nation's highway system to allow businesses to get their products to markets throughout the West, the effect of failing infrastructure on economic development could be devastating. The gaming and tourism industries also depend on the ability of customers from California and other West Coast markets to get here with a minimum of hassle.Meanwhile, the trust fund continues to fall further behind. The gas tax, currently 18.4 cents, and diesel tax, 24.2 cents, haven't been increased since 1993, and improving gas mileage in today's vehicles has hurt tax collections, yet 20 years of inflation have driven road construction costs higher.That's why the Obama administration included an extra $150 billion in its transportation plan beyond the money from gas taxes. (The plan also would allow states to charge tolls on Interstate highways for the first time to raise funds.) The bill makes changes in some business taxes to pay for the proposal. But, with an election looming in November and control of the Senate in play, there is little likelihood that Republicans and Democrats will Converse Womens White Chuck Taylor
