Looks like it could be a crazy week in Washington, D.C., according to Transportation Issues Daily. The website reports that the Senate passed MAP-21, a two-year $109 billion bill, late last week. The House, however, doesn’t appear to be that organized. The Federal Transportation Bill expires next Saturday and discussion of extending it isn’t even on the House agenda for this week.
An extension is required to allow the government to continue collecting the federal gas tax and related fees, and to keep federal transportation programs functioning. We’ll keep you updated as the week progresses.
