1971 Scorecard Vote

Highway Trust Fund I
Senate Roll Call Vote 311
Issue: Transportation

Revenue Act of 1971 (HR 10947). The vote is on the Percy amendment to delete a provision earmarking 7% of the federal alcohol tax revenues for the Highway Trust Fund. This would add another $350 million a year to the Trust Fund, which already spends about $5 billion a year exclusively on highway construction at the expense of other forms of transportation. The Nixon Administration supported the amendment. (Rejected 43-46. November 16, 1971. "Yes" is the correct vote.)
