Transportation Committee6



Since the first days of our nation, when the Constitution provided the Congress with the power to establish post roads and regulate commerce among the states, the federal government has played a significant role in providing for our country’s transportation and infrastructure improvements.  Our roads, bridges, railways, waterways and runways have all made it possible for what was initially a collection of relatively independent states to truly become one nation, intimately connected over millions of square miles.

Infrastructure has always been the backbone of the United States economy.  Our diverse and distant communities are tied together, and commerce thrives, because the American people have always understood the need for a cohesive, unifying transportation network.
