Senate Commerce Committee Approves Infrastructure Bill

June 18, 2021

On July 16th, the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee approved its infrastructure bill (S. 2016) by a vote of 25-3. The five-year, $78 billion rail and safety title will eventually become part of the overall Senate surface transportation bill, which will include titles from four Senate committees. 

Ahead of the Committee markup of the legislation, SIGMA and a coalition of stakeholders sent a letter to the Committee urging it to include Senator Todd Young’s (R-IN) DRIVE Safe Act amendment that would allow 18-year-olds to operate commercial trucks across state lines under an apprenticeship program. During its markup of the legislation, the Committee adopted a modified version of Senator Young’s amendment that establishes a 3-year pilot program of the DRIVE Safe Act’s provisions.
