Robert Bixby, executive director of The Concord Coalition, said this indirect battle involving the Export-Import Bank and the Highway Trust Fund is not surprising. "Fiscal issues and issues pertaining to the size and scope of the federal government never go away--even when the parties reach a budget truce and decide to dispense with direct fiscal warfare," Bixby said. "When the budget front is quiet, these battles about government often take place in different places," he added.
