The U.S. Senate has passed a two-year, $109 billion transportation bill.
The measure is awaiting a vote in the U.S. House. Democratic U.S. Senator Ben Nelson says if it’s signed in to law, Nebraska will receive about $300 million over the next two years."What it will be is money that will go to the state highway department, the Department of Roads, and the highway commission on the priorities that have been established in Nebraska."
