Looks like it will be another busy week for transportation in the Federal government. Both Chambers will be in session and are expected to debate and conduct votes on their transportation bills.
The Transportation Issues Daily blog predicts the House will pass its five-year, $260 billion bill later this week and the Senate will eventually pass its two-year, $109 billion bill.
So does that mean there will be a final Federal transportation bill passed soon? Eh, probably not. Transportation Issues Daily also says it’s a huge uphill battle for the House and Senate to negotiate a final bill before the March 31 expiration of SAFETEA-LU so you can most likely look for another extention.
