Republicans and Democrats in Congress have reached a tentative agreement on a two year deal to finance the nation’s highways. The $8.4 billion dollar bill comes just days before the previous Transportation Bill expires on Saturday June 30, 2012. The legislation will reportedly help to create around 3 million jobs.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has released a comprehensive report on agricultural transportation in the U.S., the first ever of this magnitude. The report, Study of Rural Transportation Issues, was mandated by the 2008 farm bill and covers the four major modes of transportation commonly used by agriculture in the U.S.: truck, rail, barge and ocean vessel.
