Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Sam Graves, (MO-6), issued the following statement after Secretary Chao testified before House Transportation Committee on the Administration’s Infrastructure Proposal:

“I appreciate Secretary Chao for her testimony today advocating for the Administration’s infrastructure priorities,” said Graves. “The Administration’s emphasis on our rural communities brings much-needed attention to a part of our country that has been overlooked for far too long. My district will greatly benefit from the President’s emphasis on rural infrastructure. This effort should be a bipartisan one as members of both parties have long supported finding new ways to adequately invest in our infrastructure. I commend the President for continuing to make infrastructure a top priority and I look forward to working with the Administration to achieve the goals of their proposal.”
