Omnibus Bill Includes Highway, Airport Funding

As part of the $1.3 trillion spending bill President Donald Trump’s signed into law,  lawmakers approved $7.8B in new spending on US DOT-administered infrastructure programs, according to the AASHTO JOURNAL.

Highway and transit programs now will have access to higher, full-year 2018 funding levels provided under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act of 2015, as well as billions more that lawmakers provided in infrastructure funding.

This includes $2.525B in new spending from general funds on highways and bridges beyond levels Congress authorized in the FAST Act. Of the additional funds for highways and bridges, lawmakers provided that $1.98 B would be disbursed through formula programs to state DOTs, with the money available for obligation through fiscal 2021, AASHTO reported.

Lawmakers also extended aviation programs another six months through Sept. 30. They provided $1.6B more funding than last year, and this includes an additional $1B for AIP grants. 

The house approved the legislation by 256-167 on Thurs., March 22; the Senate approved it the next morning by 65 to 32, and the President signed the bill into law on Fri., March 23.
