“Much lies in store for the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. I am looking forward to continuing my current work in the Committee, as well as joining the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit as it begins its work on a much anticipated highway bill. Transportation is critical to our economy and job creation in Central Florida, and I will continue to work towards improving our transportation infrastructure while ensuring taxpayer dollars are spent wisely.”
