Highway Bill Nearing Passage

Posted on the 28 June 2012 by Easytracgps @EasyTracGPS

Measure would maintain current federal transportation funding levels for 27 months

 A bipartisan and bicameral agreement on a new highway bill– which would maintain current federal transportation funding levels for 27 months—will likely be passed within days, according to several news reports as well as the Office of Rep. John L. Mica(R-FL), chair of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.

This new bill would expire about a month before the 2014 Congressional mid-term elections.

Mica stated that if a majority of House and Senate conferees approve the conference report, then both bodies can be expected to take up the measure before the end of the week, so that the new bill may be passed prior to the expiration of the current extension of transportation funding on June 30th.
