Boxer, Mica: Goal is to complete authorization package by next week

Posted on June 21, 2012

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, and Rep. John L. Mica (R-FL), Chairman of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, issued the following statement regarding the surface transportation bill conference:

"The conferees have moved forward toward a bipartisan, bicameral agreement on a highway reauthorization bill. Both House and Senate conferees will continue to work with a goal of completing a package by next week."             

Consensus on a transportation authorization bill has been stalled since SAFETEA-LU expired in September 2009, with the both the House and Senate releasing and approving two vastly different bills.
