RELEASE: Blunt: “Improving the strength, safety & reliability of our infrastructure is critical for maintaining our state’s competitive advantage”

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.), a member of the Senate Commerce Committee, today released the following statement on President Trump’s infrastructure proposal:

“As a hub for our nation’s highways, railways, and waterways, improving the strength, safety, and reliability of our infrastructure is critical for maintaining our state’s competitive advantage. The president’s focus on expediting new projects, leveraging federal dollars to boost state, local, and private-sector investment, and modernizing rural infrastructure, including broadband expansion, provides a solid foundation for the committee to begin its work on a broad, bipartisan bill. I look forward to getting to work on a plan that will ensure we have the infrastructure network our economy needs to grow, create jobs, and drive innovation.”
