RESOLUTION NO. 970356

 

Expressing the Council's support for the Highway Trust Fund Integrity Act of 1997.

 

WHEREAS, on March 26, a Senate field hearing will be held in Kansas City to take testimony on the reauthorization of ISTEA, with Senator Kit Bond presiding; and

 

WHEREAS, Senators Bond and Chafee have introduced the Highway Trust Fund Integrity Act of 1997, which is intended to link Highway Trust Fund income with spending out of the fund and to restrict the use of these funds for roads and bridges; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council supports the concept of fully funding highway programs through the taxes imposed for that purpose and eliminating the use of gas tax revenues for nontransportation purposes, and

 

WHEREAS, the Council believes that the passage of the Highway Trust Fund Integrity Act of 1997 will result in a significant increase in highway improvement funds available to Missouri; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council express their full support for increased funding for transportation programs and projects through the Highway Trust Fund Integrity Act of 1997, and urge all Missouri representatives and senators to work for the passage of this proposed legislation.
