House Rules Committee to approve transportation, housing budget rule
The House Rules Committee will meet Wednesday to approve a new rule for the 2014 transportation and housing budget, according to a report from our sister site, Better Roads.
The rule could lead the way for the spending bill, H.R. 2610, to be considered by the House this month.
The legislation calls for $44.1 billion for the departments of Transportation (USDOT) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD), with $15.3 billion of that money used for transportation funding.
The budget passed the House Appropriations Committee last month on a vote of 28-20. It is likely to be considered by the House next week.
The House’s budget for USDOT and HUD is $9.9 billion lower than the Senate’s proposed budget.
