House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, on Wednesday said the 11th-hour transportation deal expected to be negotiated out on Wednesday will drop some programs and shorten regulatory reviews, at least in some cases.

"A lot of work has gone into this," Boehner said on Wednesday morning. "It's not finished yet.
