Federal FY 2011 Funding Bill Includes Transportation Cuts

High-speed rail would be cut by $1 billion in FY2011 under a House Appropriations Committee continuing resolution released Thursday.

The CR’s total spending cuts will exceed $74 billion, including $58 billion in non-security discretionary spending reductions, according to a House Appropriations Committee statement. The federal government is currently operating on a continuing resolution that expires March 4 because the last Congress did not pass any of the 12 full-year appropriations measures for the current federal fiscal year that began Oct. 1.
