Transpo Bill Briefings Go Late

From Adam Snider and Burgess Everett's post in Politico's Morning Transportation:

The Competitive Enterprise Institute isn’t exactly heartened that pension smoothing is going to account for a large chunk of the pay-for for whatever package transportation bill gets wrapped up in. Analyst Marc Scribner writes: “Pension smoothing is notoriously unreliable. …It is absurd that the highest levels of congressional leadership did not bat an eye at this massive funding gimmick, which accounts for nearly one-tenth of total MAP-21 funding.”
