Congressman Oberstar's Proposed Fix For The Highway Trust Fund

Who would have thought that congressmen have their own blogs? Well, at least one does. Congressman James Oberstar is chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and is apparently a blogger. Today, he
posted this thread about his proposed highway reauthorization bill that will replenish the Highway Trust Fund. The report on this comes out tomorrow and is allegedly 800-pages long. I've got Jeff Selle in our office resting up to read it tomorrow, so we'll fill you in after we get a look at it and an idea of what it contains.
