Statement of U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood on Passage of the Surface Transportation Bill


“This is a good, bipartisan bill that will create jobs, strengthen our transportation system and grow our economy,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.  “It builds on our aggressive safety efforts, including our fight against distracted driving and our push to improve transit and motor carrier safety.  The bill also provides states and communities with two years of steady funding to build the roads, bridges and transit systems they need.  We look forward to working with Congress, states and local communities to put this bill to work quickly and effectively.”
