My Position on Transportation
Since our nation’s beginning, when the Constitution provided Congress with the power to establish roads and regulate commerce, the federal government has played a major role in providing our Country with improvements to transportation and infrastructure. Arkansas is blessed with miles of major corridors on both land and water. Farmers and businesses depend on our nation’s interstate and inland waterway systems to transport their goods throughout the country and the world.
As a Member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, I am committed to ensuring that our nation’s transportation system is safe and efficient. Our Country’s diverse and distant communities are united together, and commerce thrives, particularly because the American people have always understood the importance of a unified and organized transportation system. Maintaining and strengthening our infrastructure provides unparalleled return on taxpayer investment, and will employ thousands of Arkansans as well as encourage businesses to set up shop in Arkansas.
