Surface Transportation Reauthorization
Every 5 years, Congress works to enact a new surface transportation reauthorization bill, which governs United States federal surface transportation spending. The majority of the jurisdiction of the bill is investments in highways and public transit. Each member is responsible for submitting high priority projects from his or her Congressional district for inclusion in the legislation. To view the projects I have submitted for inclusion in the upcoming bill, please click here.
