A new road program has been proposed by the President and sent to Congress' Advisory Committee for the National Highway Program. The Committee's recommendations are in two parts: a continuation of the regular federal aid to highways at the rate of $623 million a year; and expenditures during the next ten years of an additional $25 billion for the Interstate Highway system. They estimate this amount would construct 40,000 road miles, about 800 per state.
