Transportation and Infrastructure

A nation cannot prosper if it doesn’t have an effective and efficiently-run transportation infrastructure. I believe investments in water, energy, education, and broadband priorities are also essential to create good jobs and keep America competitive in an increasingly globalized economy.

We must improve the region’s dilapidated highway infrastructure while encouraging public transit and bicycle/pedestrian travel. I will continue to defend the Capitol Corridor and other regional transit services.

For more information concerning my work and views on transportation and infrastructure issues, please contact my Washington, DC office.

I look forward to your feedback. Thank you.

--Congressman John Garamendi
