SAFETEA-LU Extended Through Sept. 30, 2011

March 05, 2011

President Obama signed into law March 4th a seven-month SAFETEA-LU extension bill approved earlier by Congress. The latest extension continues federal highway and transit program funding authority under SAFETEA-LU through the end of the current fiscal year, Sept. 30, 2011.

The Senate approved the extension by voice vote one day after the House cleared the bill, 421-4. It maintains surface transportation funding at fiscal year 2010 levels. SAFETEA-LU programs have been operating under a series of extensions since October 2009. Multi-year reauthorization legislation is expected to be introduced in Congress this spring.
