"I am pushing everything I can to figure out a way to continue the surface transportation bill," Reid said. "I'm just willing to talk to anybody. The ultimate decider on this however, is going to be Ron Wyden and the finance committee."

Wyden, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, reiterated Tuesday his intentions to find a bipartisan funding solution.

Reid Defers to Wyden on Highway Bill Funding

Majority Leader Harry Reid sidestepped a question at his weekly news conference Tuesday about whether he would push for a corporate tax "holiday" to fund the depleted Highway Trust Fund, as reports surfaced that Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., had discussed the idea with Reid.

"I am pushing everything I can to figure out a way to continue the surface transportation bill," Reid said. "I'm just willing to talk to anybody. The ultimate decider on this however, is going to be Ron Wyden and the finance committee."

Wyden, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, reiterated Tuesday his intentions to find a bipartisan funding solution.
