Transportation and Infrastructure

f t # e
 
road-work-ahead  Transportation and infrastructure are key components of economic development efforts in North Carolina and in the 5th District. During my time in Congress, I have worked to bring accountability to the Highway Trust Fund by introducing legislation repealing Davis-Bacon wage requirements. Removing Davis-Bacon wage requirements from federally-funded highway construction projects would free up funds from inflated wages and regulatory compliance to create more market-priced construction jobs and more affordable, timely-completed projects. This Congress, I introduced H.R. 1483: Highway Trust Fund Reform Act of 2015, which would avoid a harmful fuel tax increase and prevent another costly bailout by saving the Highway Trust Fund in a fiscally responsible manner.

It is important to protect and preserve modern infrastructure while providing jobs. That is why, for the past several years, I have also co-sponsored the National Right-to-Work Act and the Railway Labor Act to require fair treatment of non-unionized workers.
