    ENZI. Mr. President, I thank the Senator from Oklahoma for letting me interrupt at this time. We passed a bill earlier, and normally I would have spoken after final passage, but I didn't want to hold people up who had transportation plans, so I reserved my comments until later. I appreciate this opportunity to speak at this time.

    I congratulate the Senator from Oklahoma and the Senator from California for the significant highway bill they passed tonight. I know there was a lot of work that went into that and a lot of good things will come out of it. It will make a difference for the economy in the United States.

    As chairman of the Budget Committee, I know if we can get the private sector to increase by just 1 percent, we bring in $400 billion more in revenue without raising taxes, and raising the economy by 1 percent in the private sector is significant.
