Washington, D.C. – Today Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) praised passage of the Surface Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2015. “This kind of long term authorization is essential for projects like the North Spokane Corridor and the Highway 12 project in Walla Walla,” McMorris Rodgers said. “Our roads must be safe and well maintained; it is crucial for our economy and our Eastern Washington way of life.”

H.R. 3763 passed the U.S. House with an overwhelming bipartisan majority of 363-64.

McMorris Rodgers released the following statement:

“Smart investment in our nation’s roads, bridges, and highways and the ability to keep goods moving safely and efficiently, is vital to the health and growth of our economy. When we develop or repair infrastructure today, it must be with a focus on tomorrow. This legislation emphasizes building roads and highways with current technology and the strength to hold for the next 10 years. By cutting red tape and bringing together local governments with private sector partners, this 21st Century plan will create ground-breaking improvements and benefit communities for years to come.”
