Larson on House Passage of Transportation Reauthorization

November 5, 2015
Press Release

Washington – Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) issued the following statement regarding his vote in favor of the Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2015 (STRRA).  This legislation would reauthorize federal surface transportation programs for six years:

“This is a good first step, but we still have a long way to go. Our nation faces enormous infrastructure needs. As this bill moves to conference, it is imperative we increase funding levels to make crucial repairs to our crumbling roads, bridges, and transit systems. I am also pleased that the House has once again passed the bipartisan Export-Import Bank reauthorization, which is vitally important to Connecticut manufacturers.  It is time we bring this to President for his signature so Ex-Im can live again.”
