Colbeck went on to point out that both the Senate and the House have passed legislation that would re-prioritize $700M in existing funding for roads. He has demonstrated that this amount is sufficient if we were to simply build higher quality roads that last longer.
The Senator has submitted letters to the office of each state elected official inviting them to participate on either side of the debate. The debate acceptance response deadline in these letters was established as October 14, 2015 at 5pm.
