House Republicans Officially Introduce Surface Transpo Extension

Thursday, March 22, 2012 - 01:54 PM

This just in: House Republicans introduced a three-month extension to avoid a shutdown of transportation programs after March 31.

From the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure:

"In order to ensure continuity of current surface transportation programs while the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and House Republicans continue to work toward a responsible transportation bill that provides long-term certainty, reduces the size of government, eliminates earmarks, and is fully paid for, Chairman Mica, Chairman Duncan and Chairman Camp introduced a three-month extension of transportation programs today.  This legislation, the Surface Transportation Extension Act of 2012 (H.R. 4239), will extend current programs through June 30, 2012."
