MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders says a new agreement in Congress will bring $1.1 billion in transportation funding to Vermont within the next five years.

Sanders says the package doesn’t contain everything he had hoped for, but he’s pleased it will allow improvements to Vermont’s transportation infrastructure.

He says the bill means Vermont will see a 15 percent increase in transportation funding during the five-year period.

The measure also increases funding for public transit in the state.
