Transportation funds being extended

Florida's two U.S. senators helped pass a jobs bill today that would extend transportation funding through December and give the state a chance to recover Transportation Enhancement funds that were rescinded during 2009. Florida's George LeMieux was one of 13 Republicans who crossed party lines in the 70-28 vote on H.R. 2847. The bill now goes back to the House, which passed a more costly version in December.

A Tweet from Transportation for America, though, quotes DC Stretsblog seeing a raincloud in the otherwise sunny sky:
