House to Consider $8 Billion Highway Trust Fund Shortfall Remedy

From AASHTO Journal: House to Consider $8 Billion Highway Trust Fund Shortfall Remedy

"The House of Representatives is reportedly prepared to consider legislation Wednesday to transfer $8.017 billion to the Highway Trust Fund to offset a projected shortfall in Fiscal Year 2009.

Sources indicate that the House leadership plans to expedite the bill, introduced last Thursday, to a floor vote using a procedure known as suspension of the rules. Under such a maneuver, the bill can bypass a committee hearing and gain House passage if at least two-thirds of representatives vote "yes." The procedure is commonly used in the House to pass noncontroversial legislation."
