Support a well-funded, multi-year surface transportation bill that provides robust transportation growth.

I strongly urge the U.S. Congress, to enact a new multi-year authorization bill that provides dedicated funding for the Highway Trust Fund, to pay for the current federal transit program and the growth of that program for transit and highway infrastructure needs.
- Connecticut transportation infrastructure and services will be at risk if there is no federal funding.
- There is uncertainty in planning transportation projects without long-term infrastructure funding commitment.
- The economic benefit that comes with infrastructure investment is indisputable. For every $1 invested, there is $4 in economic benefits.
- Enable a state of good repair;
- Maintaining the existing system and doing normal replacement of aging buses, rail cars, and facilities;
- Expanding public transportation facilities in growing communities;
- Maintaining our aging roads and bridges;
- Public transportation provides much needed mobility.
While passenger fares, combined with state and local funding, pay for the majority of public transit expenditures each year, federal spending is a critical part of paying for capital and operating expenses at public transportation systems nationally.
