SD Rep. Kristi Noem Comments on “Drive Act” Bill

The second version of the Surface Transportation Extension Act of 2015 was signed by the President on Friday. The extension gives Congress until December the 4th to agree on funding a long term transportation bill called the DRIVE Act. House Rep. Kristi Noem believes the President will see a long term transportation spending bill soon…

Rep. Kristi Noem says the DRIVE Act will fully fund transportation spending for three years…

   The Drive Act is now in conference working out the differences between the two versions of the bill. Congress has not passed a transportation funding bill that lasted longer than two years since 2005, making long term planning a challenge.
