President Obama signed into law the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act. The FAST Act reauthorizes federal surface transportation policy and funding through 2020. The five-year funding act is the first long-term federal reauthorization in over a decade. The FAST Act modestly increases transportation funding to ODOT and to local governments in Oregon.
