Republicans in Congress today proposed a 60-day extension of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users. The current bill expires this Saturday. The proposal didn’t get far though; after a debate, a vote was postponed.
Transportation Issues Daily reports that the vote was cancelled because Democrats indicated they would not vote for the extention, in an effort to try to force the House into voting on the Senate’s transportation bill.
So what happens now? Well I would say commence to panic but those in the know say Republicans likely will implement a procedure to pass the bill with a simple majority.
