Would Eliminate Ambiguity Regarding Use for Transportation Projects
On October 27, Reps. Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) and Carolyn Bourdeaux (D-Ga.) introduced the AGC-backed legislation that would make several categories of infrastructure investments—including transportation projects—and disaster relief explicitly eligible for unspent COVID-19 relief dollars, eliminating ambiguity as to whether such projects could receive these funds. This legislation, led by Senators John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Alex Padilla (D-Calif.), passed the Senate on October 19.
