Secretary of Transportation en LaHood Pushes Senate Transportation Bill <p>U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood says the Senate version of a new transportation bill is needed to drive large-scale projects like the Macomb bypass to completion.<br /><br />He said, &rdquo;(It&#39;s) a bi-partisan bill, paid-for bill and we begin to move the country forward. And we give certainty to transportation. Communities like Macomb know that there is a transportation program that could begin to help fund the Macomb bypass, if that bill passes.&rdquo;<br /><br />The Senate bill is a two-year bill that would provide $109 billion&nbsp; in funding.<br /> Tue, 01 May 2012 16:43:57 +0000 James Lenz 14364 at LaHood Pushes Senate Transportation Bill
