House GOP Passes Short-Term Highway Bill

House Republicans muscled through their 90-day highway and transportation reauthorization bill on a mostly party-line vote Thursday.

The bill now goes to the Senate, which recently passed a strongly bipartisan two-year reauthorization measure. Democrats now have to decide whether to swallow the House’s short-term bill before the programs lapse this weekend.
