    NACo Legislative Analysis: S. 1931, the Surface Transportation Reauthorization Act of 2021

    On May 26, the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works unanimously passed bipartisan highway legislation, the Surface Transportation Act of 2021. The bill, led by Chairman Tom Carper (D-Del.) and Ranking Member Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.V.), would fund America’s roads, bridges and highways at roughly $311 billion over five years. In comparison to current law, this is an increase of more than 34 percent; in comparison to the last bipartisan highway bill passed by EPW in July 2019, this is an increase of roughly six percent. The current one-year extension of the surface transportation law, P.L. 116-159, will expire on September 30, 2021.
