Senate Passes Two-Year Highway Bill 74-22

The Senate on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved a two-year transportation bill 74-22, which is set to cost $109 billion. It was developed by Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Jim Inhofe (R-OK).

The legislation now goes to the House, where Republican leaders have tussled with their rank-and-file members, who want a more conservative version than the Senate landed on.
