"So these jobs permeate the entire economy. And it is absolutely true that if we can fund—that is, pass—a 6-year, robust transportation bill that is fully paid for, Americans would go to work in middle class jobs. That is the first effect: people will have jobs. And in building the infrastructure, you then lay the foundation for future economic growth."

"Title 23 of the U.S. Code states: “transportation should play a significant role in promoting economic growth, improving the environment, and sustaining the quality of life” through the use of “context sensitive solutions.” In 2008, the Government Accountability Office issued a report examining key issues and challenges that needed to be addressed in the next reauthorization of the transportation bill. That report highlighted the clear link between transportation policy and the environment.

I would urge my colleagues to join me trying to address this problem facing America’s waterways and infrastructure."
