President Trump’s proposed budget for the Department of Transportation (DOT) is running into resistance from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

During a hearing on Thursday, House appropriators expressed deep concern over the administration’s proposed cuts to a number of popular transportation programs, as well as Trump’s support for a controversial plan to separate air traffic control from the federal government.

More than 250 House lawmakers want to see a fix for the ailing Highway Trust Fund (HTF) included in any tax reform package this year.

The fund, which distributes money around the country for road and other transportation projects, is financed by federal fuel taxes that haven’t been raised in more than 20 years.
