This week, Ranking Member Sam Graves announced the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Republican members.
“Infrastructure is a major national priority for the President and the Congress, and I believe this is an issue on which we can find common ground,” said Graves. “I am excited to welcome our new and returning Republican Members to the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. I know they come ready to work and want to get something done for our country’s infrastructure.”
The following Republican members are new to the committee:
Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) will serve as the Ranking Member for the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit. He has served on the Committee since coming to Congress in 2013 and has worked on major legislative projects and played key roles in the development and passage of many pieces of Committee legislation in recent years, including the current long-term surface transpiration reauthorization law, the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act.
“It’s been an honor to serve on this committee for my tenure in Congress, and I’m thankful to Ranking Member Graves for this incredible leadership opportunity,” said Rep. Davis. “We have an opportunity for true bipartisanship and to actually get something done. Roads and bridges impact every single American and are critical to our economy. I look forward to working with Ranking Member Graves, Chairman DeFazio, and my colleagues on the Committee to move forward legislation to address our highway, bridge, and transit system needs.”
The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) and its members believe that mobility is a basic human right. From work and education to life-sustaining health care and human services programs to shopping and visiting with family and friends, mobility directly impacts quality of life.
