    SHAHEEN. Thank you, Senator Inhofe. I will be brief.

    Mr. President, I think it is important to challenge the provision in this legislation.

    I support the highway bill. I think the negotiators did a great job to get us a 5-year bill, but the fact is this provision was not included in either the House transportation or the Senate transportation bill. It is an indefensible reversal of the bipartisan budget bill that became law less than a month ago. It is a $3 billion giveaway to the insurance companies, and I think we need to challenge this kind of move when it gets dropped into a bill.
