WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) released the following statement after voting for the INVEST in America Act, comprehensive legislation to modernize America’s roads, bridges, transit, rail, drinking water and wastewater infrastructure.

“My constituents have voted time and time again for ballot initiatives which raise their own taxes to fund desperately needed local transportation projects. It’s time the federal government does its part to address traffic congestion and bring our roads and bridges into the 21st century,” said Rep. Eshoo. “Because one third of emissions come from the transportation sector, this bill makes direct investments in electric vehicle charging stations and other green infrastructure such as electric buses, to lower carbon emissions.
