U.S. House Approves Extension of the FAST Act

NAPA has prepared a state-by-state fact sheet of how much highway funding each state will receive under the one-year extension of the FAST Act and a 72-day continuing resolution. 

The week of Sept. 21, the House passed the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2021 (H.R.8337) with broad bipartisan support, extending current federal funding levels through Dec. 11, 2020. The bill includes a yearlong extension of surface transportation programs set to expire on Sept. 30, 2020. In addition to a plus-up for nationally significant freight and highway projects, the bill transfers nearly $14 billion to the Highway Trust Fund: $10.4 billion to the Highway Account and $3.2 billion to the Mass Transit Account. Additionally, the Airport and Airway Trust Fund would receive $14 billion. The Senate is expected to pass the bill.
