Congratulating Columbus, Ohio, On Winning The Smart City Challenge June 23, 2016
Rob Portman, R-OH
"Mr. President, I rise to join my colleague from the other side of the aisle, Senator Brown, who came to the floor earlier to congratulate Mayor Andy Ginther of Columbus, OH, and the people of Columbus, OH, and Central Ohio for a big victory this week. We won the Federal Department of Transportation’s Smart City grant competition. This is something we have been working on for months. It is a big deal to us in Central Ohio. It gives us the opportunity to get $40 million in terms of a grant from the Department of Transportation to be a model city and also in combination with another grant of $10 million from Vulcan Corporation and $90 million that has been raised in the private sector—that is a total of about $140 million to reshape transportation in Central Ohio to create more economic growth for the citizens of Central Ohio and to be a model not just for Ohio but for the rest of the country on how we can use smart transportation to help create economic growth and opportunity."
