Marchant Statement on Building a Stronger America

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24), issued this statement following the release of the Infrastructure Initiative by the Administration:

 

“The poor shape of America’s infrastructure puts our citizens at risk every day. Last year, leading civil engineers gave our infrastructure network a failing grade of D+. The Administration’s initiative places a high priority on responsibly using taxpayer dollars to rebuild America, with only a fraction of the total price tag coming from federal funds. By unraveling the layers of government red tape and using partner financing through proven incentive programs, we can rebuild our nation’s infrastructure without breaking the bank. This is the fiscally conservative model Congress should use to build a sustainable network of bridges, highways, dams, and waterways for our future generations.”
