ABSTRACT
An interview with Democrat Representative Timothy Bishop regarding the next transportation-funding bill is presented. Bishop expects a quick action by the House of Representative on the transportation bill. When asked if there will be a fuel tax increase, he suggests that with the new idea of imposing a two-tenths of 1% tax on speculative oil trades, raising the fuels tax is not necessary. He suspects that the administration of President Barack Obama will be more supportive of mass transit considering the dependence on foreign oil and carbon footprint.
