The New Transportation Bill: MAP-21 Signed into Public Law

For the first time in nearly seven years, the country has a new multiyear surface transportation reauthorization. On Friday, July 6, President Barack Obama signed H.R. 4248, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), into law at a ceremony that included construction workers and other stakeholders. Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee John Mica (R-Fla.) and House Transportation Committee Ranking Member Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) were on hand for the signing ceremony.
"This bill will keep thousands of construction workers on the job rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure ...," said Obama. "There’s work to be done building roads and bridges and wireless networks. There are hundreds of thousands of construction workers that are ready to do it." (Transportation Nation has the full transcript of Obama's remarks.)
NAPA has posted a special summary of highway and research provisions, the very latest state-by-state funding charts, the official enrolled copy of the legislation, and additional information on the legislation at www.asphaltpavement.org/govaffairs.
