ITS America Summary of the Senate Transportation Reauthorization Bill

The bipartisan proposal would maintain overall surface transportation funding at current levels plus inflation (roughly $109 billion) over the two-year timeframe covered by the bill. However, the Senate Finance Committee, chaired by Senator Baucus, must still identify the additional $12 billion needed to fully fund the bill, and the Senate Banking Committee and Senate Commerce Committee must still provide transit, safety, and freight provisions.
