Committee members debated final language for H.R. 2400, the Building Efficient Surface Transportation and Equity Act of 1997, or “BESTEA.” The bill provides transportation funding for the next five years. They agreed to recommend current levels of transportation funding for another six months while federal expenditures are reviewed in an effort to resolve a disagreement between Rep. Shuster and Speaker Gingrich over the effect of the transportation bill on the budget agreement. They also approved the current spending levels in the bill which could create a controversy if other revenues are not generated or released from other programs. close
