WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 9, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Congressman Frank Guinta voted for the Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform (STRR) Act of 2015, saying the six-year funding authorization would allow the Granite State to begin long-awaited infrastructure projects.
Manchester’s former mayor, a current member of the House Financial Services Committee, explained that the STRR Act ends a series of short-term fixes that have caused delays and waste around the country. “Previous Congresses, Republican and Democrat, have failed to find a solution to our crumbling highways,” said Rep. Guinta. “I’m proud this 114th Congress has accomplished our goal in a bipartisan manner.”
Rep. Guinta pointed to enhanced safety and national security measures. “We’re incentivizing new technologies to reduce traffic and collisions and improving emergency preparedness. Today’s bill addresses our most pressing transport needs,” he said, “especially the need to stop governing by crisis. We’re paving the way to growth and jobs.”
