Extending the Paving Season

U.S. House Passes Short-Term Highway Trust Fund Fix

This week, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill entitled, “Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014” which seeks to generate $10.9 billion for the federal Highway Trust Fund (HTF) and preserve existing levels of highway and public transportation investment through May 2015. The measure also would extend current law authorizing the highway and public transportation programs for the same duration.

The proposal would be offset with about $6.4 billion in revenue from pension smoothing, another $3.5 billion from customs user fees and a final $1 billion from an account set up to deal with leaking underground storage tanks.
