Over the summer, Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wy.) introduced an amendment to repeal the rescission, or cancellation, of $7.6 billion in federal-aid highway contract authority scheduled to take place on July 1, 2020, under the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. This amendment was not included in the THUD package/minibus passed by the Senate in early November. FHWA published the official amounts showing each state's share of the $7.6 billion rescission.
If the recission is not repealed, it will likely result in the slowing, freezing, or cancelling of projects by state departments of transportation.
