After weeks of negotiations, 1,003 days and nine extensions, a new surface transportation legislation, which was passed by Congress on June 29, was signed into law by President Barak Obama on July 6. The Portland Cement Association released a statement saying the organization was especially pleased with key provisions in the final bill—known as Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century, or MAP-21—related to life-cycle analysis (LCCA) and pavement research, in addition to provisions to quickly bring the technologies to states.
