House Won't Vote on Senate's 6-year Highway Bill Before August Recess

Short-term extension is the only way to prevent a lapse in federal infrastructure funding at the end of the week

The Hill

On Monday, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said his chamber will not vote on the Senate's six-year highway bill before the August recess. The House could either send a smaller two- or three-month highway patch bill to the Senate or try to force the Senate to except the five-month highway bill it passed two weeks ago.

The Senate and the House are at odds over approving a short or a long-term highway funding bill.
