President’s bold transportation proposal hits the Hill

Yesterday, I went to Capitol Hill to deliver the urgent messages of thousands of mayors, governors, and other leaders from across the country.

The messages I brought to the House Appropriations subcommittee on "Transportation, Housing & Urban Development, and Related Agencies" are all variations on the same theme: After years of short-term, last-minute measures, it's time for Congress to step up and bring some stability to how we fund our nation's transportation system.

I want to say a particular word of thanks to the Chair and the Ranking Member for your years of service. I know I speak for many transportation advocates when I say you will be deeply missed.

Today, I’m here to discuss the President’s 2015 plan for our nation’s transportation system.
