CONFERENCE REPORT ON H.R. 3, SAFE, ACCOUNTABLE, FLEXIBLE, EFFICIENT TRANSPORTATION EQUITY ACT: A LEGACY FOR USERS -- (House of Representatives - July 29, 2005)

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. UDALL of Colorado. Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of this conference report on the ``Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users'' (TEA-LU).

While the funding provided in the bill will not meet all the needs in Colorado's Second Congressional District--let alone those of the rest of the State or the country as a whole--it does provide resources for many needed improvements.

The conference report will help our State address challenges that face Colorado as a result of a decade of rapid expansion in the northwest Denver suburbs and mountain and resort communities. Without the passage of this essential long term extension critical transportation and infrastructure needs for Colorado and the Nation will continue to be ignored.

This bill will also fuel job creation.

I am committed to continue working with the Colorado delegation, local communities and the Transportation Committee to secure essential Federal funding to get people and goods from one place to another with a focus on transit and other alternatives and improve current modes of Colorado's transportation network.
