If you’re like most people, you’re aware that the U.S.’s transportation spending bill, SAFETEA-LU (Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users) expired a while back and we’ve had a couple extentions of it. And you’re most likely aware that there was a scare last week when lawmakers couldn’t reach a concensus on extending it and some U.S. Department of Transportation employees were laid off for a couple days while details were hashed out.

There’s been a lot happening since then though that you probably don’t know about, especially behind the scenes. WSDOT’s Larry Ehl provides this synopsis of the situation, including its impact on Washington State.
