Larsen to Host Transportation Roundtables, Bring Local Concerns to Congress</A

May 24, 2008

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) will host transportation roundtables during the May district work period to hear from local stakeholders and transportation leaders from across the 2nd District as Congress prepares to write the next surface transportation bill in the coming year.  Larsen serves on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee which will reauthorize the legislation for the next six years, providing an opportunity to reevaluate federal transportation policy and invest in local transportation needs.  

“Transportation investment creates jobs and economic opportunity,” said Larsen. “The next surface transportation bill could be the single greatest investment in transportation and jobs in the history of our country. I want to hear from you, the communities in my district, so that I can go back to Washington DC and advocate for our local priorities.”
