Transportation and Infrastructure

Chicago is the heart of the nation’s transportation networks, including airways, transit, railroads, waterways, and highways.

As a member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, I aim to ensure we bring our national infrastructure to a state-of-good-repair, fix our crumbling roads and bridges, and invest in more efficient, accessible, and affordable public transit all while ensuring the travelling public’s safety.

Access to good jobs, healthcare, education and job training starts with viable transportation -- it is the catalyst that drives our economy.
