Senate Panel to Vote on Transportation Bill Next Month

Mark-up November 9 likely signals action on the two-year proposal

While a House transportation bill still appears to be a long way off, the Senate is prepared to move forward on its version. Environment and Public Works Committee leaders just announced that they’ll be marking up their two-year bill November 9.

This is good news: First, it’ll be the first time we’ll see full legislative text beyond the bill outline released over the summer. And second, the scheduling of a markup may signal that Senate leadership is on board to vote on the bill before the end of the year.
