Highway-Bill Drafting Could Be Complete in May, Mica Says

Congressional staff on the House Transportation and Infrastructure committee is making progress drafting legislative language of what could become the panel’s six-year surface transportation bill, said Chairman John Mica, R-Fla. That sets up a schedule under which the committee could complete behind-the-scenes work later this month, and pass a bill around the end of May or in early June.

But Mica also said he is pushing to get a final bill reauthorizing the Federal Aviation Administration through Congress before its programs expire the end of May.
