Transportation

A safe, efficient and well-maintained infrastructure is not only critical to moving people and products, but it strengthens our nation’s economy. To keep our economy moving, I believe we must invest in and modernize the nation’s roads, bridges, airports and waterways. I remain committed to working with my colleagues in Congress to develop long-term transportation and infrastructure solutions that benefit all Americans.

One of the core functions of the federal government is to ensure that America has the infrastructure to facilitate interstate commerce and strengthen the nation’s competitive edge in the global economy. We must support a comprehensive transportation policy that integrates the needs of the federal government with that of state and local transportation agencies.

I agree with President Trump. It is time to address the decline of our nation’s transportation infrastructure, and I applaud the president for unveiling an optimistic plan to start the dialogue toward solutions. While I am concerned that the president’s plan is too reliant on state and local money, it is still an important step in the right direction. In the months ahead, I hope that bipartisan and bicameral discussion in Congress will take place so we can determine the best infrastructure solutions for the American people.
