WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee says House Republicans won't go along with Senate Democrats on their highway aid plan.
States are facing a cutoff of federal highway and transit aid this summer, and the Democrats' plan would raise taxes to keep the money flowing.
But Rep. David Camp says the GOP-controlled House won't accept a tax increase.
The Michigan Republican says he's looking at policies that have had bipartisan support in the past, and hopes to have a bill ready by early July.
Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden — the Finance Committee chairman — has proposed a $9 billion plan that would raise taxes on heavy trucks and tighten the mortgage-interest deduction.
His committee plans to consider the bill Thursday.
