House Appropriations Committee votes down transportation enhancements

On July 24, 2003, the House Appropriations Committee failed to pass an
amendment offered by Congressman John Olver (D-MA) to fully restore
enhancements funding by a vote of 29-33. While this is a setback, it is
not a complete loss. The vote was closer than we expected and sets the
stage for a battle on the House floor when Congress returns from its
August recess.
