Sending Office: Honorable Earl Blumenauer
BRIEFING: Funding to Rebuild and Renew America
TODAY at 2:00 pm
Please join Rep. Earl Blumenauer (OR-03) and Rep. Alan Lowenthal (CA-47) for a members and staff briefing highlighting some of the funding proposals to improve our transportation system.
It is no secret that America is falling apart while we fall behind our global competitors. What used to be the envy of the world, the state of our infrastructure has steadily declined while other countries have ramped up investment and global influence.
Meanwhile, hardworking American families are forced to make up for Congress’ inaction: costing them $523 a year in vehicle maintenance and more than $1,400 in wasted gas, time, and productivity due to congestion. It is time to act.
Reps. Blumenauer and Lowenthal will be joined by leading voices in the construction, freight, and engineering industries to discuss some of the funding proposals to fix our crumbling infrastructure:
- Brian Pallasch, American Society of Civil Engineers
- Elaine Nessle, Coalition for America’s Gateways & Trade Corridors
- Lou Neudorff, Jacobs Engineering/I-95 Corridor Coalition
- Dave Bauer, American Road and Transportation Builders Association
