HIGHWAYS House OKs Money For Secondary Roads

The nation's interstate highways would be combined with thousands of miles of secondary roads in a new National Highway System under legislation the House passed Wednesday.

The House approved, 412-12, a measure that would finance improvements to 159,000 miles of highway.

Roads under the bill would be eligible for $3.6 billion a year in federal aid from the national highway trust fund. In addition to the entire 45,000-mile interstate system, the new designation also covers 114,000 miles of state highways, airport connectors and other key roads linked to ports, military bases, transportation facilities and border crossings.

He refused to take any questions and then got back in the car and was driven away. The Vermont property will remain in the Solzhenitsyn family. All three of his sons - Stephan, Ignat and Yermolay - are American citizens. AP
