WASHINGTON - The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee is expected to vote today on a bill that would extend the current transportation spending law until 2011, despite opposition from within the committee and from key House members.

Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, who serves as ranking minority member on the committee's transportation and infrastructure panel, said yesterday at a press conference that he will vote against an 18-month extension and may instead propose a 12-month extension during the committee meeting.
