The article reports that the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee unanimously approved a $90.6 billion fiscal 2005 spending package for the Transportation and Treasury departments, which includes $34.9 billion for highway construction. The committee's action came after the full House was started debate on the $89.9 billion transportation and treasury-funding measure approved by the House Appropriations Committee in July. The Senate committee measure also would provide $7.75 billion for mass transit, which is about $500 million more than the amount approved by the House Appropriations Committee and $500 million more than provided in fiscal 2004.
