Rockefeller and Lautenberg want to reduce national motor vehicle-related fatalities by 50 percent by 2030.

The bills would have required NHTSA to act to upgrade numerous auto safety standards and would have given NHTSA more power to get dangerous vehicles off the roads and higher fines to deter automakers.

The senators also want to reduce national per capita motor vehicle miles traveled on an annual basis and cut greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood told reporters at the White House on Wednesday that the administration will work with Congress to properly fund transit construction projects. But he said the administration will not propose a gas tax increase or other mechanism to fund additional spending.

The surface transportation programs authorized under a 2005 law expired at the end of 2009. The Obama administration and Senate transportation leaders want a six-year extension of transportation policy.
