House Passes Transportation Budget

The Vermont House has passed a $544 million state transportation budget.

The spending plan reflects the end of federal stimulus money, but it is up from before the extra federal funding arrived.

Final passage came today.

The budget will pay to repave more than 100 miles of interstate highways and 135 miles of state highways.

It also more than doubles the amount of money that will be devoted to fixing roads affected by an unusually bad year for potholes. That will total $4 million.

In addition, the House version of the transportation budget would boost funding for rail improvements and bridge repairs.

The bill now goes to the Senate.
