Nearly 2,000 furloughed Department of Transportation employees return to work today, after the U.S. Senate late last night voted to extend the Highway Trust Fund for another 30 days.
The transportation bill had expired Sunday at midnight without Senators able to reach a vote to extend it. That meant there was no money for transportation programs, forcing the temporary layoffs.
So the big question now is; what will happen over the next 30 days? Will this happen again? We’ll be monitoring the situation and will keep you updated.
