- Excerpt from Transportation and Infrastructure:

House Appropriations Action. Last week the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation/Housing and Urban Development approved its spending bill for FY 2014. The bill provides $44.1 billion ($13.9 billion less than the President requested) and reflects the automatic spending cuts required under sequestration. Although the bill largely protects core funding for surface transportation programs authorized in MAP-21 (P.L. 112-141), the subcommittee proposes no funding for the TIGER grant program in FY 2014 and even calls for the recession of half the funding the program received for FY 2013. The spending bill will be considered by the full committee on Wednesday, June 26.
