Officials at the North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission [NCPRPDC] have been closely watching recent U.S. Senate and House activity.
The Senate recently postponed consideration of the FY13 Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations bill until possibly the middle of July; Senate leaders originally anticipated to debate the annual spending bill this month, according to North Central Executive Director Eric Bridges.
A week ago, the House voted to instruct conferees to the House-Senate negotiations on the highway bill to finish their work by Friday, June 22.
