The week before last, the Surface Transportation and Veterans Health Care Choice Improvement Act of 2015 was approved quickly by both the House and the Senate and immediately signed into law by President Obama. The primary purpose of this stop-gap bill was to avoid a lapse in highway and transportation spending.
