House Committee Passes Surface Transportation Reauthorization Bill

On Thursday, October 22, 2015, the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee “marked up” and passed its Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act (i.e., the STRR Act). During the markup, the Committee either addressed or considered more than 150 filed amendments. Click here to view a short ATA summary of significant provisions in the bill. Next step in the process is for the full House of Representatives to consider the bill on the House floor. No date has been set for full House consideration, but floor time may be scheduled in early November. Note: The House leadership election could delay full House consideration of this bill.
