Nadler Amendment Approved
Today, the House approved the Nadler Amendment to the federal economic stimulus bill on a voice vote. The Amendment restores $1.5 billion for the transit capital formula program and $1.5 billion for New Starts (new transit services).
For more information about the Nadler Amendment, see yesterday's blog posting.
The House also rejected a proposed amendment to strip funding for Amtrak.
These two votes are a big victory for the Chicago area.
The House is expected to approve the full stimulus bill later today.
