House Votes on Transportation Spending: Track it Live
The full House is set to vote this afternoon on the $123 billion transportation and housing spending bill for 2010, with a series of amendments okayed by the Rules Committee last night.
Transportation wonks can check out the amendments right here. Of particular note are Rep. Tom Latham’s (R-IA) bid to cut $3 billion from the bill’s $4 billion in high-speed rail funding and a proposal from Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN) to prohibit Amtrak from distributing free alcohol — a marketing ploy the train network attempted in 2007.
For the political junkies out there, the outcome of each vote will be posted on the House Press Gallery’s website (click "roll-call votes" on the left-hand side to access the menu). Happy hunting.
