Transportation And Infrastructure
As a member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, I work to promote investment in public transportation and the economic vibrancy of rural communities.
I advanced a number of North Coast priorities in the bipartisan FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, which passed the House of Representatives. This legislation will improve rural air service for small community airports like the California Redwood Coast - Humboldt County Airport and increase the equitable treatment of forestry and fire protection pilots.
The development of new transportation systems and the protection and enhancement of existing infrastructure are integral components to a successful and stable economy. I worked diligently to defend the SMART Rail Project in Northern California and to maintain the accessibility and functionality of the Petaluma River for commerce and navigation—a fight that continues on as we work to secure funding from the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund for chronically underfunded shallow dredging projects in the North Bay and other parts of the district.
