Ribble also today called for a solution for long-term solvency and certainty in funding for roads and bridges in a letter signed by 285 Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle.  He released the following statement:

“America is the best place in the world to do business, and that is partially because of our superior, if aging, infrastructure.  My constituents in northeast Wisconsin and Americans all over our country in the manufacturing, construction, agriculture, and distribution sectors rely especially heavily on our roads and bridges to move people and goods from place to place—and the certainty that they will be able to continue to do so in the future.

Long-term funding for our roads and bridges would provide the security that our country needs to ensure that our infrastructure remains safe, reliable, and serviceable for years to come.”

A member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, Congressman Ribble believes strongly that Congress must act to shore up the insolvent highway trust fund and provide financial certainty for our roads and bridges.  He will work with anyone, anywhere, anytime to ensure that we are moving our nation forward.
