A Quick Look At Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Transportation Bill
The policy staff at our partner, Transportation for America (T4), have pored over the 600-plus pages of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee transportation bill draft, released on Nov. 4, and come up with an informative summary.
As T4 points out, one of the most visible changes proposed is to restructure seven core highway programs and 13-plus formula programs into just five core highway programs. This graphic illustrates those changes.
This bill only authorizes highway-related programs. The transit and rail portions of the federal transportation programs are handled by other committees.
