The following is the statement from Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Ranking Member Sam Graves (R-MO) regarding the President’s infrastructure plan:

“Our country desperately needs Congress to find common ground to make smart, responsible investments in our infrastructure.  Fortunately, this is just the beginning of the process, and as Congress develops infrastructure legislation in the coming weeks, I hope the focus will be on proposals that can in fact gain bipartisan support."

Note: on March 4th, Graves urged the President and other leaders that a bipartisan infrastructure bill must remain manageable, responsible, and transportation-infrastructure focused, and must not leave rural America behind. Last week, Graves reiterated these points in his opening statement when Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg testified before the Committee to discuss the Administration’s infrastructure priorities.
