DOT Secretary Calls on Congress to Invest in America's Infrastructure

Secretary Foxx wants Congress to act on a long-term transportation bill

U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx traveled the Southeastern United States in an effort to get Congress to act on a long-term transportation bill. According to a release, Foxx traveled through Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia while visiting universities, manufacturers, bridges, freight facilities, and highway projects in order to highlight the importance of infrastructure.

“I traveled up the East Coast this week to focus America’s attention on our roads, rails and ports – and to let people know that the future is a choice,” said Secretary Foxx. “If Congress fails to invest in transportation, we fail to invest in our future.”

On February 2, the Obama Administration announced a plan to address the infrastructure deficit with a $478 billion, six-year surface transportation reauthorization proposal building on the GROW AMERICA Act, which the Administration first released last year.  The plan makes critical investments in infrastructure needed to promote long-term economic growth, enhance safety and efficiency, and support jobs for the 21st century.
