Apparently there’s been some work behind the scenes on a federal transportation bill recently. Word began leaking earlier this week that House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee Chair John Mica might release the draft text of such a bill this Friday. That was followed by a couple summaries of the proposal that made their way out to the public.
The bill would reportedly provide about $58 billion per year. Transportation Issues Daily has an entire package of stories about the “American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act,” as it will be called, including five big proposed changes in the bill, hurdles to enacting a Fderal Transportation Bill, and how it would reform transit programs.
