Maintaining and updating our national infrastructure is critically important for both safety and commerce. I was proud to help work on the multi-year federal surface transportation bill (FAST Act of 2015) to ensure Oklahoma’s critical road and bridge work was properly funded. Oklahoma’s federal highway funding will be increased by $289 million over the next five years and we helped speed up the process for critical bridge repairs.
In Congress I have worked hard to ensure the critical needs of Oklahoma and the Tulsa Port of Catoosa were addressed in the Water Resources Reform Development Act (WRRDA). Keeping the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System operating is critical for all of eastern Oklahoma.
