Transportation & Infrastructure

To build a competitive economy for the 21st century, the United States must improve our crumbling infrastructure. Investing in transit, transportation, and other vital infrastructure creates jobs and fosters economic growth.

In Congress, I strongly support a comprehensive national strategy to improve and invest in our nation’s infrastructure. At home in Minnesota, I am working with my colleagues and our state and local leaders to support investments in transportation infrastructure that keep our Twin Cities and East Metro economy strong and growing.
