90 Day Highway Bill Extension Passed by Congress, Signed by Obama

On Friday, March 30, President Obama signed a 90 day Highway Bill Extension for federal transportation funding, avoiding a shut-down of public transit systems and highway safety and construction programs through the end of June. American Trucking Association spokesperson Sean McNally said the group applauded the House and Senate action and “hope they will quickly return to the business of crafting a long-term transportation bill. This is the ninth short-term measure approved by Congress since September 2009, when SAFETEA-LU, the most recent long-term transportation funding law, expired.
