LaHood Pushes Senate Transportation Bill

May 1, 2012

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.

He said, ”(It'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.”

The Senate bill is a two-year bill that would provide $109 billion  in funding.
