Buttigieg: We May Turn to Congress for Additional Funds for Baltimore’s Bridge, After the Federal Gov’t Has Used the Emergency Relief

‘Your district could be next’
By Grabien Staff


BUTTIGIEG: "So, we’re using an authority called the emergency relief — this is through our Federal Highway Administration, that’s how we got those first $60 million out, and there will be more where that came from. Now, it is possible we may need to turn to Congress to supplement that fund. That has happened in the past. If you remember the 2007 bridge collapse in Minnesota, ultimately, about $260 million put together, including funds that were put through Congress on a bipartisan basis, and I hope and expect this too will be a bipartisan priority."
