Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Sam Graves (R-MO) issued the below statement following the election of Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) as the 56th Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives:

“Congratulations to Mike Johnson on being elected to serve as the next Speaker of the House of Representatives. Throughout his time in Congress, Speaker Johnson has been a consistent and passionate champion of conservative principles, and I look forward to working alongside him and all House Republicans to deliver on the promises we made to the American people. In the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, we will continue pursuing an active agenda that includes tackling ongoing energy and supply chain challenges; long-term reauthorizations of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Coast Guard, and pipeline safety programs; guarding against waste, fraud, and abuse as the Infrastructure and Jobs Act is implemented; and more. It’s time for the House to get back to work, and that includes moving strong legislation that is critical to America’s infrastructure.”
