New Congressional Infrastructure Caucus Promotes Access, Resilience

Congestion relief, climate resilience and transit accessibility are among the policies a small group of U.S. House lawmakers are promoting as Congress readies a comprehensive highway bill.

The newly formed Future of Transportation Caucus is focused on advancing a new vision to modernize the country’s transportation landscape that is anchored on ensuring access for users on freight and passenger corridors.

Priority will be given to equity, access and sustainability across modes of transportation rather than advocating exclusively for additional funding, caucus leaders explained Oct. 17.
