We don't yet know what the final bill will look like - it could provide a funding level somewhere between the Senate and House levels, or it could just continue funding at the 2010 enacted level.
What's at stake? Jeff Davis, publisher of Transportation Weekly, broke out the differences between the two bills. Here's how much more funding the Senate proposed for several programs:
Federal Highways: $669 million (ob limit)
FHWA Planning Grants: $200 million
Amtrak Grants: $337 million
FTA Formula & Bus Grants: $18 million
NHTSA: $19 million
FMSCA: $13 million
The Senate provided less funding than the House in a few areas:
TIGER , $600 million vs. Senate's $500 million
FTA Capital Investment Grants, $2B vs. Senates $1.85 B
