Today, the House began consideration of H.R. 22, the DRIVE Act. The legislation would reauthorize the Federal Highway Trust Fund as well as a number of transportation-related programs for six years. The House will be considering amendments tonight and will likely vote on final passage later this week. The Senate has already passed legislation, and after House consideration and passage, negotiations will continue in a conference committee to determine how the program would be funded.
