Conference Report on H.R. 22, Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2015by Representative Lois Frankel
Posted on 2015-12-03
FRANKEL of Florida. Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of the FAST
Act, our first long-term surface transportation bill in nearly 10
I want to thank Chairman Shuster and Ranking Member DeFazio for their bipartisan leadership. It has truly been an honor to work on a committee where we can show the American people that we know how to work together.
Mr. Speaker, transportation moves our economy. Passing the FAST Act will shift America's infrastructure into higher gear. This legislation brings American families tens of thousands of new good-paying jobs while promoting safer, more efficient travel on our transportation infrastructure. It sends more dollars to our local communities, who know their needs best.
I will associate myself with the remarks of my colleague Representative Brown when I say that this is a wonderful gift to the American people for this holiday season.
