Their View | Sens. Corker and Murphy pave the way for shoring up U.S. transportation funding

In a better Washington, a bipartisan proposal from Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., wouldn’t elicit any special praise. In the Washington we have, their transportation plan, which would raise the gasoline tax modestly to pay for the nation’s roads and rails, is a portrait of political courage. By daring to cross the aisle and propose what many know — but won’t admit — to be good policy, Corker said he wants “to break the ice” freezing lawmakers from doing the right thing. It’s time for his colleagues to listen to reason.
