Note: This is here I relocate my blog archives so my blog does not get to full. However, Many of the sites and links are do expired over time, and will not load, also the videos that were removed were not transfered via link to the archives, so embed coding is transfered to the archives I will eventually add a specific area for video archives but for now the coding and or just links will remain archived, with the test, as my current archives does not allow the display of such.

Forwarded update from:

I wanted to write and give you a quick update on the status of the federal surface transportation reauthorization bill. As a reminder, the current surface transportation bill, SAFETEA-LU, expires on March 31st. So far, it has been extended 8 times over a roughly 2-year period.

U.S. House:

This week the U.S. House is in recess, having presented no surface transportation reauthorization bill  that could garner enough votes for passage (including H.R. 7 and several variations of it). What we do know is that transit funding should be safe, thanks in large part to the efforts of our advocates and supporters. There are rumors the House will still produce a viable bill before the March 31st deadline, while others say the House will have to take up the Senate bill or extend SAFETEA-LU for the 9TH time.

U.S. Senate:

Meanwhile, the Senate is closer than ever to passing MAP-21, a bipartisan two-year transportation reauthorization that preserves dedicated funding for transit, presents a consolidation of restructured programs and formulas, and reforms and simplifies grants offered by the Department of Transportation so that criteria are based more strongly on merit. Several positive amendments have also been adopted into the bill in the last few weeks. This week the Senate will debate the remaining proposed amendments and hopefully take a final vote on the bill. We'll keep you updated. [Click here and scroll to the bottom of the page to see proposed amendments and their status].

Thanks for sticking with us through this process. Please let me know if you have any questions.
