Congress Approves Two-Week Surface Transportation Extension

Posted on: November 20th, 2015 by NADO Admin

This week, the House and Senate both approved a two-week extension of surface transportation programs.  The current extension expires today (November 20) and additional time is needed for House and Senate conferees to reach agreement on a final surface transportation reauthorization bill.  House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster announced this week that he hopes to have a conference report finalized by November 30.  Conferees have been meeting to work through differences in the House-passed Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2015 (STRRA) and the Senate-passed Developing a Reliable and Innovative Vision for the Economy (DRIVE) Act.
