SENATE IS NEXT HURDLE FOR TRANSPORTATION BILL

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved $284 billion for federal road and transit programs through 2009. In the Senate, the Environmental and Public Works Committee will vote on the highway section of the bill and the banking committee will vote on mass transit. The previous statute, the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) expired in 2003 and has had six short-term extensions that will expire May 31, 2005. The article highlights some of the "high priority projects" in the bill, as well as noting which states stand to gain or lose with the passage of the bill.
