House Republicans have revamped their version of the transportation bill, but the changes have not calmed fears of those who count on federal dollars to see projects through to completion. "We have no idea whether [the bills] are going to be short or long. We're telling the states [to prepare] for probably a series of stopgap funding bills," said Barbara Harsha, executive director of the Governors Highway Safety Association. Meanwhile, John Mica, R-Fla. and chairman of the House transportation committee, said he still hopes it can be a five-year bill.
