House Abandons Five-Year Highway Bill


As NATSO and other groups were gearing up for a possible floor vote to attach an amendment on rest area commercialization to the highway bill, House Republicans decided to put the highway bill on hold late Friday afternoon. While the future of the bill is uncertain, the House reportedly plans to pass a shorter-term bill.

The five-year, $260 billion highway bill was scheduled to come to the floor this week for a full House vote, but Democrats and some conservative Republicans were united in opposition to the bill.
