Transportation bill including investments in mass transit
Virginia drivers know that improvements to our transportation system have been long overdue. Since I was elected to the Senate in 2007, I have worked diligently to help find a sustainable source of revenue to fix our transportation crisis
without shortchanging key investments in education, law enforcement, and public health. For years, progress in this area has stalled in the General Assembly, but persistence has finally paid off.
This year I was part of the bi-partisan effort in the Senate to reach a transportation compromise that will put the Commonwealth on a path to address the chronic congestion on our roadways. [We passed] a comprehensive transportation bill that will
increase the level of sustainable funding for our roadways, make investments in mass transit options, and direct transportation money to the regions of the state with the highest traffic levels (Hampton Roads and Northern Virginia).
