[Correction: The original report stated that the proposed budget was $44 billion. This report now reflects the correct amount, $44.1 billion.]

The House Appropriations Committee yesterday released a $44.1 billion budget for the departments of Transportation (USDOT) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

According to a release from the committee, the fiscal year 2014 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development funding bill is “$7.7 billion below the fiscal year 2013 enacted level,” “$13.9 billion below the President’s budget request” and “approximately $4.4 billion below the level caused by automatic sequestration cuts for these programs.”

The bill calls for $15.3 billion in discretionary appropriations for USDOT.

The bill outlines funding for transportation safety programs and agencies. It includes $828 million in both mandatory and discretionary funding for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), $572 million for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, nearly $41 billion from the Highway Trust Fund for the Federal Highway program, $11.8 billion for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), $1.16 billion for the Federal Railroad Administration, $184.5 million for rail safety funding, nearly $2 billion for the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), $8.6 billion in state and local transit grant funding from the Mass Transit Account, $1.82 billion for Capital Investment Grants and $326 million for the Maritime Administration.

The bill also calls for a total of $28.5 billion for HUD.

The Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Subcommittee is scheduled to consider the bill today.
