A transportation and housing appropriations bill was pulled from consideration on the House floor Wednesday.

The House bill would provide $44.1 billion in discretionary appropriations, about $10 billion less than is included in the version of the bill pending in the Senate, which has also under consideration this week. The House bill eliminates funding for transportation investment generating economic recovery grants, bars federal funding for the California high speed rail project and reduces funding for the community development block grant program.
