Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Ranking Member Sam Graves (R-MO) today applauded the Administration’s Executive Order targeted at reducing infrastructure project delays throughout the Executive Branch:

“Fixing America’s infrastructure can provide our economy, distressed by the pandemic, with a desperately needed shot in the arm, and I appreciate the President’s actions across federal departments and agencies to responsibly cut red tape for projects that can help rebuild our workforce, rebuild our economy, and rebuild our country.  Time is money, so eliminating delays that hold up or kill projects will have the same impact as increasing funding, and it will let workers get back on the job improving our infrastructure.”
