Transportation Funding Bill Would Increase FMCSA Budget

A federal trucking regulator would receive $881 million for operations during the next fiscal year under legislation a House panel approved July 8.

House Democrats’ proposed allocation for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration would be a $202 million increase from the fiscal 2020 enacted level. The proposed funding would amount to $179 million more than the president’s current request, which was a nearly 4% increase from the previous year.
