House passes reauthorization bill

Posted on April 2, 2004

The House passed Friday its TEA 21 reauthorization bill, which will provide $275 billion over six years, with $51.5 billion in guaranteed funding for the transit program. Before passing the bill, the House defeated by a partyline vote of 225-198 a procedural effort to raise the bill's funding level to $318 billion. During a floor debate an amendment passed that would essentially apply the existing Buy America rolling stock standard to manufactured products, including both the 60%/40% and subcomponent requirements. The bill also directs the Federal Transit Administration to undertake a charter bus rulemaking to consider whether there are limited conditions in which transit agencies could provide community-based charter services to local governments and non-profit agencies that would not otherwise be served in a cost-effective manner by private operators. The next step is for the House and Senate bills to be considered by a conference committee to resolve differences in the measures.
