The Democrats Who'll Restore Our Checks and Balances

As a long-standing member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I have fought hard to maintain our roads, bridges, and create jobs through these investments. In fact, both parties claim an infrastructure package is a high priority, though Donald Trump wasted no time in backing off his promise to pass one.

Politico knows I'll make sure Trump takes care of our critical infrastructure. And they've named me one of the top Democrats in this article who'll restore checks and balances in Washington, D.C.

My long history of improving the transportation and infrastructure brought in a 27-month federal highway and transit bill of $1.1 billion for Oregon, restoration of the Coos Bay Rail Line, funding to dredge South Coast Ports, and hundreds of millions to restore crumbling bridges along I-5.

I will do whatever it takes to preserve our nation's infrastructure and ensure our roads are safe to drive on, our bridges are secure to cross, and our airports are clear for takeoff.
