Transportation: House Transportation Committee Leaders Release Surface Transportation Bill

On June 3, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chair Peter DeFazio (D-OR) released text of the Investing in a New Vision for the Environment and Surface Transportation in America (INVEST in America) Act. This bill reauthorizes the surface transportation programs, currently set to expire September 30. It also increases funding for the Section 5310 program (for the enhanced mobility of seniors and people with disabilities), creates a one-stop paratransit pilot program, and streamlines the disability-discrimination accessibility complaint process for the Federal Transit Administration, among other important provisions.
