Calling it "another desperate attempt to push forward their fossil fuel agenda," Snyder sees the ploy as a sign that "the House GOP leadership now wishes this whole transportation thing would just go away."
"They have egg on their faces from repeated failures to get even their own caucus on board with their drilling-and-driving plan, and they still have no idea about how to deal with it. The House hasn't been able to pass anything dealing with infrastructure, but they have passed three - count ‘em, three - bills to expand oil drilling."
Snyder is pessimistic that any type of substantial federal transportation reauthorization bill will be attempted, let alone passed, before this November's elections.
