Senate to Accept 3-Month Highway Bill
 

The Senate will accept a House bill to provide a three-month extension of highway programs, as well as preventing a veterans funding shortfall.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Tuesday the Senate will take up the highway extension from the House that will run to Oct. 29. He also said the House will pass a long-term bill that will ultimately go to conference with the Senate's long-term bill.
