WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Wednesday, the House passed H.R. 662, which ensures federal transportation spending for the rest of FY 2011, by a 421-4 vote, according to The Hill.
Members of both parties said they would prefer a full reauthorization of transportation spending, but also said yet another extension is needed to ensure transportation construction can go forward over the summer.
The bill will now be sent to the Senate. For the full story, click here.
