Congress given more time to pass THUD bill

Trump signs bill to extend current funding until December 8th

Posted September 15, 2017

The THUD (Transportation, Housing and Urban Development) Act to fund the Department of Transportation (DOT) for FY 2018 may be open for debate a little longer. President Trump signed a bill into law to extend FY 2017 funding levels no later than December 8, 2017.

The THUD Act includes funds for DOT agencies, including the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Administration. A provision to extend funding was contained in the “Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018 and Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Requirements Act, 2017,” which became Public Law No: 115-56 on September 8, 2017. According to the legislation, funds will be extended until December 8, 2017, unless an appropriations bill is passed prior to the deadline.
