Excerpt from Energy and Climate Debate

Congress finished a few things on its plate last week as it prepared to leave Washington to begin a two-week recess.

Following House and Senate passage earlier in the week, President Obama March 30 signed into law a 90-day extension of federal highway and transit programs. The legislation (H.R. 4281) also will ensure the continued flow of motor fuel, heavy truck, and truck tire taxes into the Highway Trust Fund through the end of June. Though the Senate had previously passed their $109 billion version of the transit reauthorization bill, the House had been unable to come to a long-term agreement on the highway bill, and so the short-term solution prevents the authorization from expiring March 31.

Please see full issue below for more information.
