Dr. Dan Benishek, M.D. (MI-01) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed H.R. 5021, the Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014:
"All families and business owners know how important maintaining our roads and highways is to our economy here in Northern Michigan. If we can maintain our roads and keep them safe, then more jobs and opportunities will come to our communities. I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues on long term reforms that will give states more flexibility on determining the transportation needs here in Northern Michigan and around the U.S."
