Rep. Curbelo Strongly Supports Long-Term House Transportation Bill
Washington, D.C.—Today, the House overwhelmingly supported a bipartisan, long-term highway bill that will reauthorize and reform surface transportation programs in the United States. Rep. Curbelo issued the following statement in support of this legislation:
“For far too long, Congress has kicked the can down the road by providing short-term patches to transportation funding, causing uncertainty for our local and state governments as they work to repair our nation’s failing infrastructure. This important bill authorizes surface transportation programs for six years and improves our nation’s infrastructure system by prioritizing funding and providing more flexibility to states.
The House Amendments to the Senate Amendment to H.R. 22, the DRIVE Act, were concurred to in the House by a vote of 363-64. The House and Senate will now have a Conference Committee to present a bipartisan, bicameral bill for the President’s signature into law.
