After the Senate failed to pass a federal transportation bill, Transportation Department officials are scrambling to find a way to keep their workers from being furloughed next week.
Thousands of Transportation Department staffers here in Washington and across the country face another day of furloughs today, and possibly the rest of the week. It's all because of a legislative stalemate in the United States Senate.
Senate also considering separate extension bill that would end furloughs, but Sen. Bunning has put hold on it. Transportation furloughs 2,000 employees and stops 41 major construction projects because it doesn't have funding.
