"Cry Havoc:" Boxer Says Short-term Highway Bill Hurts Planning

March 23, 2012

A 90-day extension of current transportation funding would create "havoc" for cities and states trying to plan their transportation projects, said Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif, in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Boxer was speaking of House Republicans' plan for a short-term funding extension instead of the Senate's bipartisan two-year bill. GOP senators might also try for the extension, said Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., according to a report in The Hill's Transportation Blog.
