Boyle statement regarding House passage of H.R.22, the DRIVE Act
Congressman Brendan F. Boyle released the following statement regarding House passage of H.R.22, the DRIVE Act, a bipartisan bill providing $325 billion to reauthorize federal-aid highway and transit programs for six years.
“I am proud to be a part of the bipartisan cooperation that went into passing a long-term highway-transit reauthorization bill, but there remains much more work to be done to improve the bill in House-Senate conference and put us on a path to fixing our long term transportation problems. The roads and bridges we commute on, on a daily basis, are crumbling. It is time to invest in American infrastructure and create good paying construction jobs for hardworking Americans in Pennsylvania. This is a matter of safety, efficiency, and economic growth. We can only go so far by funding these priorities with budget gimmicks.”
