Highway, appropriations bills may be delayed

Legislation to reauthorize the national transportation program and to fund government agencies may be delayed until next year, The Washington Post reports.

Congressional Republicans are considering delaying the $300 billion transportation bill and other appropriations bills because they have run out of time. There is disagreement over funding levels in the highway measure.

Congress is set to adjourn October 8. The Interior appropriations bill has passed the House but not the Senate.
