Nadler Amendment Clears Rules Committee. Floor Vote Next.
A spokesman for Jerrold Nadler confirms that the amendment to boost transit funding in the stimulus package has cleared the House Rules Committee. That means the full House will decide whether to add $3 billion in transit investment to the economic recovery bill — a vote that could take place as soon as noon tomorrow. The most important House member to call now is the one who represents you.
Also on the horizon: getting the Senate to include funding for transit service in its version of the stimulus bill.
