Senate approves $109B transpo bill


2-year bill consolidates federal programs, streamlines project delivery and provides more flexibility to states

The U.S. Senate today approved a two-year transportation authorization bill. Valued at $109 billion, the approval comes just 17 days before the latest extension of SAFETEA-LU expires. In that 17 days, the House needs to reassemble its stalled attempt at a transportation bill and deliver a bill to President Obama’s desk.


The Senate bill consolidates federal transportation programs from about 90 to fewer than 30, streamlines the environmental approval process to help projects finish faster and takes steps to encourage more private investment.
