This week appropriations panels in both the House and Senate have been marking up their versions of annual transportation spending for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1, but different chambers of the politically divided Congress are far apart.

Moreover, any final bill remains hostage to another round of sequestration under the budget act unless Congress agrees to a new law averting it.

So far, at least a continuing resolution of 2013 appropriations is expected to lead the government into fiscal 2014, and sequestration cuts could come before the end of the calendar year.
