About the bill

This bill covers a six-year period for highway and infrastructure funding and proposes to convert the highway program to a block grant funding system with the goal of providing more flexibility to state and local governments.

The Senate passed its own six-year surface transportation bill — the Developing a Reliable and Innovative Vision for the Economy Act DRIVE Act (H.R. 22) or DRIVE Act — in July, but the legislation was never considered in the House because it was not fully paid for.
