The issue of Transportation is important to our district and to my work in Congress.
I believe that infrastructure is a legitimate government function. However, we must do a better job of prioritizing existing funding and stop the waste we have seen in recent years. I am aware of the importance of a long-term reauthorization bill for economic stability in our state and nation and I will work to make sure that our needs are met.
H.R. 743, The Davis-Bacon Repeal Act: I am currently a cosponsor of the David-Bacon Repeal Act, which requires that the locally prevailing wage rate be paid to various classes of laborers and mechanics working under federally-financed or federally-assisted contracts for construction, alteration, and repair of public buildings or public works. The bill states that references in any law to a wage requirement of the Davis-Bacon Act after enactment of this bill shall be null and void.

I look forward to your feedback.
