Voted to increase funding for the Highway Trust Fund that provides the revenue for our interstate highway system and other roads. Voted for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which to date has 7,886 highway and transit projects underway and created or sustained 210,000 direct on-project jobs with payrolls exceeding $1.1 billion. Voted for the Main Street Act of 2010, to provide $37.3 billion for transportation programs, including $27.5 billion for highways and $8.4 billion for transit, extend the core highway, highway safety, and transit programs through September 30, 2010, at $53.3 billion. The Recovery Act and the Main Street Act of 2010 fully fund all projects; instead of the 80-20 federal-local split traditional arrangement. In addition, I continue to advocate for needed resources to fund projects in the 43rd Congressional District through federal appropriation and SAFETEA-LU project requests.
