FILE - In this May 17, 2012, file photo, the steel skeleton for the eastern end of the new Innerbelt Bridge in Cleveland sits next to the existing span. As Congress races to renew the law that pays for national transportation programs, lobbyists are in a frenzy to shape dozens of provisions, from the length of trucks allowed on roads to whether recalled used cars must be repaired before sold and how to pay for bridges and highways. The bill is the lobbyists’ best shot in years to achieve favorable transportation policies or block regulations they don’t like. Congress hopes to reconcile differences between the House and Senate versions of the bill, and get a compromise to President Barack Obama for his signature before the government’s authority to process highway and transit aid payments to states expires.
