FILE - This April 14, 2014 file photo shows a section of the I-75 Phase II modernization project under way in Dayton, Ohio. The Senate is set to take up legislation to keep federal highway money flowing to states, with just three days left before the government plans to start slowing down payments. The House passed a $10.8 billion bill last week that would pay for highway and transit aid through the end of May 2015 if transportation spending is maintained at current levels. Under a schedule outlined by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nev., the Senate would take up that bill Tuesday. (AP Photo/Skip Peterson, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate voted Tuesday to keep federal highway money flowing to the states into December but only after rejecting the House's reliance on what lawmakers called a funding "gimmick" and moving to force a post-election debate on whether to raise gasoline taxes.
