Obama signs two-week highway bill extension

By |  November 23, 2015

President Obama signed a two-week highway bill into law that extends federal transportation funding through Dec. 4.

According to The Hill, the extension buys Congress more time to develop a long-term bill. The House and Senate are currently collaborating to piece together a long-term bill ahead of the expiration of this latest patch.

“The House and Senate are making good progress in resolving differences between their respective multi-year surface transportation reauthorization proposals,” says Rep. Bill Shuster (R-Pa.). “This clean extension provides time for that process to occur and for the House and Senate to vote on the final legislation without shutting down transportation programs and projects in the meantime.”
