Annual Transportation Appropriation Bill Advances
August 2, 2021 by NAPA Government Affairs

The House of Representatives passed the fiscal year (FY) 2022 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies funding bill by a vote of 219 to 208. For FY 2022, the bill provides $61.9 billion for the Federal Highway Administration’s formula programs funded from the Highway Trust Fund – Congress provided $46.4 billion in FY 2021 for the same programs. The Airport Improvement Program was funded at $3.35 billion from the Airport and Airway Trust Fund, with an additional $400 million for airport improvement grants. The legislation also includes $3 million – as requested by NAPA – for the Airport Asphalt Pavement Technology Program; NAPA and the Federal Aviation Administration enjoy a cooperative agreement that is funded by two previous appropriations totaling $6 million. The bill also includes directives to the USDOT on material neutrality, aggregate sustainability, Critical Commerce Corridors, and other matters – download the full NAPA summary

Congress needs to pass all 12 appropriations bills to fund the federal government beyond the end of the fiscal year (Sept. 30), when existing appropriations expire. Congress also needs to increase (or suspend) the public debt ceiling, making the fall legislative agenda very packed indeed.
