Highway funding up next at state Capitol

Roads across Texas could benefit from a funding vote being debated in the House -- now that the fight over abortion rights is over.  House Transportation Committee Chairman Larry Phillips illustrates what the nearly identical bills in the house and senate would mean.

"It takes the portion of the funds of that would be going into the rainy day fund in the future, and instead of that going into the rainy day fund, half of that would go into the highway fund," Phillips said. 

The funding bill sailed through the senate, but the House is throwing up some roadblocks and asking questions.
