Congressman Baron Hill Checks in on Local Road Construction Projects

Congressman Baron Hill recently visited the major 231S expansion project in Spencer County to check in on the status of local Stimulus and general construction projects in his district. Employees from J.H. Rudolph, Mulzer Crushed Stone and representatives from Build Indiana Council met with Congressman Hill during his visit to answer questions and speak to him about the future of transportation projects in the area. After visiting and assessing transportation projects in his district, Congressman Hill commented, “I’m convinced that if the Stimulus bill had not passed, we would be in a depression.” Topics discussed with Congressman Hill included the Reauthorization of the Federal Highway Bill. Congressman Hill did not expect the Reauthorization bill to be passed this year but does expect a stop gap highway spending extension to pass this fall. Jeff Mulzer Vice President of Administration stated, “It is our hope that a reauthorization bill can be passed. That is the best way to provide stable funding to states so they can continue to develop and repair our road system”.
