Southern Illinois is a vital cross road of sorts for our nation’s commercial transportation system. Every year, many millions of tons of cargo and billions of dollars in goods and commodities are shipped along its waterways, rail lines and yards, and trucked across its highways. These transportation nodes also help many hundreds of thousands of Southern Illinois residents commute to work and school.
American businesses, workers and farmers need to be able to efficiently and affordably ship their products to consumers not only here in the United States, but across the world.
As a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I am working to fund surface transportation programs and provide certainty and stability for the private sector and state and local governments. I am actively collaborating with my colleagues on long-term solutions to make our transportation system safer and more efficient, thereby growing our economy and spurring job creation.
