Senate to consider transportation, housing spending bill this week

July 22, 2013

capitolThe Senate this week will consider the spending bill for the Departments of Transportation (USDOT) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD), according to a report from our sister site, Better Roads.

The Hill reported that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) made the announcement last week, noting that the bill would be taken up along with 11 other annual appropriations bills.

The legislation, called the THUD bill, would allot $54 billion for transportation and housing  spending. It is expected to pass in the Senate.

The Senate bill is $9.9 billion higher than the House’s $44.1 billion bill, which has not been considered in the full House.
