Conference Committee Members Named for Federal Transportation Reauthorization

April 27, 2012

This week, Senate and House leadership released the names of conference committee members who will tackle the difficult task of negotiating a long term transportation authorization.

 

Two California members — Senator Barbara Boxer and Representative Henry Waxman — were among the 14 senators and 33 representatives asked to take on the task. 

Senators have already expressed interest in getting to work immediately, indicating that the conference committee could begin work on May 8, following a week in their districts.

The League submitted a letter on issues expected to be raised in conference committee. The letter can be found at www.cacities.org/federal. For more information, please read “House Adopts Federal Transportation Reauthorization Bill” in the April 20, 2012 issue of CA Cities Advocate
