With the 72-day continuing resolution expiring on Dec. 11, NAPA has been urging Congress to enact a full year 2021 Transportation Appropriations bill in order for the state transportation departments and the construction industry to plan for the next construction season. On Nov. 10, the Senate Appropriations Committee released the text of the fiscal 2021 Transportation-Housing and Urban Development (THUD) appropriations bill that will be the starting point for negotiations between House and Senate leadership during the lame duck-session of the 116th Congress. The bill provides $46.36 billion for the Federal-aid Highway program, the same as in fiscal year 2020 and in line with the one-year extension of the FAST Act enacted by Congress last month. The bill also supports NAPA’s proposal to direct $3 million for the Airfield Asphalt Pavement Research Program and contains no pavement-type selection or pavement design mandates. A NAPA-prepared summary of the Senate THUD bill is here.
