House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) last week told a gathering of state transportation department officials he is still working toward completing a multi-year reauthorization of the federal highway and transit programs before the current short-term extension of the programs expires May 31. Shuster, however, acknowledged that the clock is ticking and a Highway Trust Fund revenue plan is needed before a reauthorization bill can be passed, noting “every day, week that goes by that we don’t have a funding solution, it makes it difficult.” Senate Environment & Public Works Committee Chairman James Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Ranking Member Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) echoed these sentiments about the May 31 timeline last week.
