Washington D.C. – Congressman John Faso (R-Kinderhook) today joined his colleagues of the Transportation and Infrastructure Working Group of the Problem Solvers Caucus in unveiling their plan to rebuild America’s infrastructure.

“America’s infrastructure is in desperate need for fresh investment. Our roads and bridges are crumbling, while rural communities remain underserved by broadband services, said Faso. “This plan is a common-sense approach to one of our nation’s most immediate problems. I look forward to leveraging the ideas here in 2018 as Congress and the administration work together to rebuild America.”

Rep. Faso secured the inclusion of numerous provisions within the plan. Notably, language that pertains to his proposal to create a national infrastructure bank was included in the plan. That plan was introduced in Congress as H.R.3977 - Infrastructure Bank for America Act of 2017, which would create a private infrastructure bank as an method of investing in infrastructure.

The working group is made up of an eight-member bipartisan panel. Those members are: Elizabeth Etsy (CT-05), John Katko (NY-24), Daniel Lipinski (IL-03), Jacky Rosen (NV-03), Lloyd Smucker (PA-16), Thomas Suozzi (NY-03), Peter Welch (VT-At Large), and John Faso (NY-19).
