Issues: Transportation

Our nation's economy is dependent upon a safe, efficient, and reliable transportation system for not only moving people, but also goods and services. In many ways, our transportation infrastructure serves as the backbone of the economy, increasing our competitiveness and leading to greater opportunity and prosperity for all Americans. Congress must provide appropriate investment in our infrastructure, whether it is for roads, bridges, highways, waterways, ports or rail. Our current system is aging and deteriorating, and without proper investment, the nation's economic competitiveness will suffer and fewer jobs will be created.
