U.S. Senate EPW Committee Approves Six-Year Transportation Bill

The U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee unanimously approved S. 2322, a bill to reauthorize federal-aid highway and highway safety construction programs for the next six years at current funding with adjustments for inflation. Specifically, S. 2322 will maintain the core highway program structure from MAP-21 – including the National Highway Performance Program, the Highway Safety Improvement Program, the Surface Transportation Program, and the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program. The bill also contains provisions to increase spending transparency for infrastructure dollars.

The bipartisan committee vote indicates broad support in the full Senate. The Automotive Service Association will be monitoring this bill as it progresses through the legislative process. Visit www.TakingTheHill.com for more information.
