The Senate Environment & Public Works (EPW) Committee released a bipartisan six-year surface transportation bill late yesterday evening. The bill, titled the MAP-21 Reauthorization Act, will be marked up by the committee on Thursday, May 15, at 9:30am.
The EPW Committee has jurisdiction over the major part of the transportation bill, including highways and other traditional transportation issues like bridges and tunnels. Mass transit falls under the jurisdiction of the Senate Banking Committee, while rail and transportation safety issues are handled by the Senate Commerce Committee. The most critical part of transportation reauthorization – funding – is the responsibility of the Senate Finance Committee. These other three committees have not released any proposed reauthorization language for their titles.
