Transportation bill showdown begins next week

From AGC of America:

A 90-day extension of current transportation funding would create “havoc” for cities and states trying to plan their transportation projects, said Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), speaking of House Republicans’ plan for a short-term funding extension instead of the Senate’s bipartisan two-year bill. GOP senators might also go for the extension, said Sen. John Thune (R-SD). The House is unlikely to take up the Senate’s version of the bill because it is concerned about too much spending, said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA).
