GOP Introduces $400B Transportation Reauthorization Bill

House Republicans introduced a $400 billion surface transportation reauthorization bill this week that would provide funding for roads, bridges and core infrastructure.

Named Surface Transportation Advanced Through Reform, Technology & Efficient Review, the legislation authorizes funding over five years for the federal highway, transit and motor carrier and highway safety programs.

“Our bill focuses on the core infrastructure that helps move people and goods through our communities every single day, cuts red tape that holds up project construction, and gets resources into the hands of our states and locals with as few strings attached as possible,” said Rep. Sam Graves (R-Missouri), the ranking minority member of the committee.

A news release said the legislation proposes streamlined project delivery and investment in small and rural communities.

The bill’s fate is unclear given that Democrats control the House and will have their own proposals.
