House sets date for final infrastructure vote

The House of Representatives is expected to vote Thursday on the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA).

Originally, a vote had been expected as early as today. However, on Sunday evening, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House would begin debate on IIJA today and then vote on Thursday.

The current surface transportation authorization is set to expire on Thursday, meaning the House must pass the infrastructure package or a short-term extension of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, or face the Highway Trust Fund going insolvent.

ATSSA provided its analysis of the IIJA when the Senate passed the proposal in a bipartisan vote on Aug. 10. ATSSA’s analysis addresses 11 issues including the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), work zone safety, rural roads, the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), dedicated short-range communications (DSRC), tribal road safety and pedestrian safety.
