Here's another great article on the rescission: http://dc.streetsblog.org/2009/10/20/how-the-8-7-billion-transportation-contracting-gap-is-hitting-your-state/.

Also, keep in mind that the rescission applies to "unobligated" funds, so some states didn't actually lose very much money, if anything at all. In addition, this is money that can be restored once Congress can come to an agreement on the new transportation bill, which expired September 30th, and was extended to October 30th. Sometime before then, Congress is likely to extend the bill another 6 to 18 months, which means a delay in the increased funding sought by Rep. Oberstar.
