SAFETEA-LU would be extended through September 30th, 2011 under legislation passed Wednesday (Feb 16th) by the House Transportation

H.R. 662, the Surface Transportation Extension Act of 2011 is a bipartisan bill sponsored by Chair John Mica and Ranking Member Nick Rahall.

The bill extends programs at currently authorized levels, and is a “clean” extension with no policy changes.

What's next?

The full House is very unlikely to act on the bill this week. House members have an in-district work period during the week of February 21, so the House is most likely to act on the bill during the week of February 28.

Word on the street is that the Senate agrees with this legislative approach, and so it is very likely T-LU will be extended through the end of the year.
