The U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works just voted 18-0 to pass MAP-21, also known as “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century,” or the Transportation Reauthorization Bill.
It’s not a done deal though. Three other committees still have to approve funding, transit, rail, and safety sections to be folded into one bill, and it probably won’t happen immediately.
Much of today’s hearing on the bill focused on amendments to it. Larry Ehl of Transportation Issues Daily has the amendments that were adopted, as well as those that were discussed and withdrawn.
