Yesterday, the Senate passed a long-term highway-funding bill, which included provisions for a mandatory tire registration system. The bill was sent to the House for consideration, but is not expected to make it through Congress any time soon – if at all.
At the end of the day, both the Senate and House adjourned for a five-week summer vacation. Before packing off for the break, Congress passed a three-month extension of the current highway funding provisions. That bill has been sent to President Obama, who is expected to sign it.
The entire Congress will be back in session after Labor Day, so there will be no action on any bill concerning tire registration until the fall.
