Congressman Woodall Selected to Serve on House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Ranking Member Sam Graves (R-MO) welcomed the Republican Members selected to serve on the Committee in the 116th Congress.
“Infrastructure is a top priority for the President and the Congress, and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee is where we can find common ground,” said Ranking Member Graves. “Representative Rob Woodall has proven himself to be an effective and dedicated champion on these critical issues, and I look forward to continue working with him to improve our infrastructure in Georgia and throughout the nation.”
During his time on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Representative Woodall was instrumental in drafting the FAST Act as a member of the Highways and Transit Subcommittee, which established a competitive grant program that awarded $184 million to expedite construction of the new Express Lanes on SR-400. Additionally, Representative Woodall wrote the law that protected Georgia’s water supply from congressional intervention. As a member of the Aviation Subcommittee, he helped enact the longest FAA Reauthorization since 1982, which included his legislation to protect consumers from predatory billing practices in the air ambulance industry.
“I am committed to strengthening Georgia’s infrastructure, supporting local job creators, and ensuring safe and efficient travel and commerce across our country,” said Congressman Woodall. “I’m honored to advocate for the Seventh District on this committee and will continue working towards making our transportation systems stronger.”
Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes significant portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties. He currently serves on the Rules Committee as well as the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee.
