Transportation & Student Loans In One Federal Bill?

What do transportation and student loans have in common? Nothing, you would think, but sources say the two topics may be combined into one federal bill and passed together as a package.

Legislation on both items has been stalled for a while now, with the ninth extention of the federal Transportation Bill, SAFETEA-LU, expiring Friday and student loan interest rates doubling to 6.8% on July 1 unless Congress acts. And a deal could come as early as today, according to Bloomberg Business Week.
