Remarks to focus on how transportation infrastructure can boost jobs and economic development


    Raleigh, N.C.     Governor Pat McCrory will testify before the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure hearing entitled "Surface Transportation Reauthorization Bill: Laying the Foundation for U.S. Economic Growth and Job Creation Part II" on Tuesday. In his capacity as a member of the Executive Committee of the National Governors Association, Governor McCrory will join Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker and Wyoming Department of Transportation Director John Cox to offer testimony. North Carolina Representatives Mark Meadows and David Rouzer are both members of the committee.

    "North Carolinians recognize that transportation infrastructure plays a critical role in attracting businesses, supporting the vital military presence in our state and connecting our citizens to health care, educational opportunities and recreation," said Governor McCrory. "I am honored to share my experiences as former Mayor of Charlotte and as governor with the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee."

    Governor McCrory's testimony will reflect the need for the federal government to work jointly with governors across our country to build a foundation for surface transportation reauthorization that will significantly enhance the long term quality and health of our nation's infrastructure. Transportation and infrastructure has been a top priority for Governor McCrory and his administration. With strong bipartisan support, the governor signed into law a new data-driven approach to transportation projects that funds about 300 more projects and creates roughly 126,000 more jobs than North Carolina was able to create under the old formula. The governor also laid out a 25-year vision for transportation to supplement the success of other transportation projects.
