Congressman Peter Welch is a fan of electric vehicles.

Unless congress acts by the end of the month, the federal highway trust fund is going to run out of money.  That means many of the road construction projects underway in Vermont will have to be called off. Congressman Peter Welch is calling for a long-term, sustainable solution.

We talk to Congressman Welch about his support for an increase in the gas tax. We also talk about the migrant children coming across the southern border, and take your questions.

Broadcast live on Friday, July 18 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
