My Position on Transportation & Infrastructure
America’s infrastructure is in need of repair and improvement. A reliable and robust transportation infrastructure system is critical to maintaining a sound economy in Eastern Washington. Funding for our nation’s roads, railroads, and waterways can go a long way towards creating jobs and supporting local economies.
Rather than picking winners and losers with ‘pie-the-sky’ government mandates, we should be embracing an all-the-above energy and infrastructure strategy to protect jobs, low energy costs, and our national security.
I have long been a supporter of making real infrastructure investments in our communities, which is why I have led the bipartisan Build More Housing Near Transit Act, a bill to fund transit projects like commuter rail, light rail, and bus rapid transit in low income and underserved areas.
Making investments in our communities is one of the best ways to ensure we continue driving our economy to new heights, which is exactly what I am focused on in Congress.
