Reps. Daniel Lipinski (D-IL) and Michael Grimm (R-NY) form new Congressional Public Transportation Caucus.Posted by scapozzola on 05/23/2013
Reps. Daniel Lipinski (D-IL) and Michael Grimm (R-NY) have formed a Congressional Public Transportation Caucus that will focus on buses, bus rapid transit, and both light and heavy rail.
The caucus hopes to address the challenges and needs of mass transit agencies across the country.
Their timing couldn't be better. The U.S. urgently needs major repairs for key infrastructure, including failing bridges. At the same time, increased demand and decreased funding are putting unprecedented pressure on the nation's public transportation systems.
As the caucus looks to improve public transit, the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) encourages a look at Buy America preferences when public investment is involved in transit upgrades in infrastructure repairs.
