WASHINGTON -- Senate leaders pleaded Wednesday for the House to pass a transportation bill before funding for thousands of projects across the country run out of money in three days.
The Senate has already passed a two-year, $109 billion bill, but the House has been stuck trying to move anything, first failing to come up with the five-year plan that its leaders initially favored and then failing repeatedly this week to pass stop-gap extensions.
"We are moving towards a very dangerous moment here, and I believe we are already in danger," said Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).
With all the talk over Health Care this one has been under the radar but now about to expload!!! Here we go again with the Right wing pushing toward another shutdown. The Senate passed in a truely bipartisan vote a tw-year transportation bill that now the Republican House won't support due to the ultra-ring and Tea party playing the same old games. Voice your concern! TPL
