Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, commented on the American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act.
"This is a transformative piece of legislation and I am glad to be a part of it. We have listened to the American people and to states and local communities, and have developed a long-term bill that has no earmarks, returns power to local officials and the private sector, creates jobs, and reins in the federal government. It is important that we fix our roads and bridges in this country, and that we do it in a financially responsible way. This legislation does that, and is an excellent blueprint for how legislation should be put together," Fleischmann said.
