Legislation to ensure the Department of Transportation is funded through fiscal 2024 is scheduled for consideration this month in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Following Congress’ last-minute approval of a funding bill to avert a partial shutdown on Oct. 1, the Republican-led chamber is expected to debate the transportation legislation as early as the week of Oct. 9.

The House Appropriations Committee on July 18 approved the $90.2 billion fiscal 2024 transportation measure, which also includes funding for the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The bill would provide $62 billion for the Federal Highway Administration, $19.5 billion for the Federal Aviation Administration, $14.6 billion for the Federal Transit Administration, $1.4 billion for the Federal Railroad Administration and $1.2 billion for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
