    The $1 billion dollars consists of 'highway funds'.
    The government is threatening to take it away --- to provide $1 billion less to spend on building and maintaining highways. It may be that they will take it away from the Highway Trust Fund the Wiki article you link to describes, but I doubt that the people who wrote the dictionary definition had anything specific in mind.

    Note: When you link to a website, you should also summarize the relevant material in the post itself. (See Posting links.) ;)
