New Transportation Bill to Be Passed by Congress?

According to a recent article that was published in the Wall Street Journal, the House Democrats are putting their thinking caps on to come up with a new transportation spending bill that could cost approximately $450 billion over the next six years. However, the bill is just in the beginning stages and hasn't quite come to fruition yet.

  • Reducing oil consumption in order to boost economic growth.

  • Consolidate (to 6 or fewer) the number of Transportation Department programs used to channel money to the states, which would allow local officials more flexibility to deal with transportation issues.

All of this seems like a fine idea, but where is the money coming from? In a nation that has already seen the economy take a dive downward, it seems that there isn't any more money to spare. According to the article, the question of how to pay for the nation's aging infrastructure is rapidly becoming a nagging issue for Congress. The article goes on to state:
