From Alfonso A. Castillo's article in Newsday:

Marc Scribner, a spokesman for the Competitive Enterprise Institute -- a think tank that advocates limited government -- said that passage of the Senate bill would be a lost opportunity to reconsider the federal government's role in transportation, including the fairness of drivers funding mass transit through gas taxes. "I think this current Senate bill basically represents the do-nothing Congress not willing to take a hard look at the status quo and say, 'Hey, this isn't working,'" Scribner said.
