House Panel OKs Fiscal 2021 Transportation Funding Bill for the FMCSA

Legislation that would increase funding for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration was approved July 14 during a hearing of the House Appropriations Committee.

Under the fiscal 2021 transportation funding measure, FMCSA would receive $881 million for operations. The proposed funding allocation for the agency would be a $202 million increase from the fiscal 2020 enacted level, and $179 million more than the president’s current request.

The bill heads to the floor for consideration as early as later this month.
