Conferees Named for Transportation Bill

House and Senate leaders this week named their respective members of the House-Senate conference committee that will be charged with reconciling differences between competing versions of a reauthorization of federal highway and transit programs.

The Senate approved a two-year bill (S 1813) last month that keeps transportation funding at current levels and includes some significant policy changes for Department of Transportation programs.  The House, unable to find the necessary votes to approve a controversial five-year reauthorization bill (HR 7), settled on the approval last week of a 90-day extension of current law as a vehicle for a conference with the Senate.

While the House extension does not include the many policy provisions of the Senate bill, it does include a mandate that the President approve the Keystone XL pipeline and language to direct enforcement revenues from the Deepwater oil spill to recovery efforts in Gulf Coast states.  The Senate bill does not include any Keystone language (which may turn out to be the major sticking point in negotiations) but it does include similar Gulf Coast restoration language.
