What is the DRIVE Act? And why should Wisconsinites care that it has passed the Senate?
A long-term, bipartisan highway bill, known as the Developing a Reliable and Innovative Vision for the Economy Act (DRIVE), passed the U.S. Senate last week by a vote of 65-34, with Senator Johnson's support. The bill reauthorizes our country’s surface transportation and road safety programs for six years. Why is the DRIVE Act such a big deal? This is the longest multi-year highway funding measure to pass the Senate in a decade. Not since 2005 has the Senate been able to agree on a long-term bill. In fact, since 2009, Congress has passed more than 30 patches and shorter-term extensions to keep the funding flowing so that infrastructure projects can continue.
