Protecting Dedicated Highway Fund Senator Tom Libous’ Bridge and Road Investment and Dedicated Fund Guaranteed Enforcement Reform Act (BRIDGE) (S.1071) has been approved by the Senate Finance Committee and sent to the Senate Floor.

Nearly three-quarters of the Dedicated Fund is spent on functions that have nothing to do with road and bridge repairs. This bill phases out over five years the use of the Dedicated Fund for non-road and bridge expenses and prohibits it from being used that way in the future.
