This episode of NSSGA’s podcast features an interview with Rep. Sam Graves, R-Mo., the ranking Member of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee.
We sat down with the top Republican on the large committee to talk about infrastructure goals of this Congress, from funding maintenance and improvements to the effects of flooding on levee systems. “Infrastructure is something that the government should do – and should do well,” he said. “We’ve got a pretty aggressive timeline for an infrastructure bill. We’d like to see something done … before the August break, at least in the House and get that over to the Senate.”
Members from NSSGA’s government affairs team offer quick and easy ways that anyone at any quarry in the country can grab the attention of the members of Congress. It is essential to bring members to operations during the August recess when they’re in districts, they said, or meet with them in Washington, D.C., and continue to ask them to support infrastructure.
