House to consider short-term extension of surface transportation law

This week, the House is expected to consider a six month extension of the surface transportation law. The surface transportation law authorizes highway and transit programs and is due to expire at the end of the month. The short extension will give Congress additional time to work out differences on a multi-year bill. In addition to federal funding for transit programs, the current law funds a few disability specific programs to improve access to transportation for people with disabilities.
