Jaime Herrera Beutler Named to U.S. House-Senate Transportation Conference Committee

Pledges to pursue a transportation bill that will keep Southwest Washington’s economy moving

Washington – Late yesterday, Jaime Herrera Beutler was named to the joint congressional conference committee charged with advancing a national transportation funding bill.  This select committee has been formed to work out the differences between the Senate and House versions of a bill to fund the nation’s transportation infrastructure.

“It’s a tremendous honor to be a first-term Member of Congress named to this committee where I’ll help shape a solution to our nation’s transportation challenges,” said Jaime.  “We need a bill that strengthens our nation’s transportation system and creates jobs – both paramount priorities to Southwest Washington residents.  I plan to work with my colleagues from both parties to move forward a solution that provides reliable, long-term funding for priority transportation projects throughout this region, and our nation.”

The House-Senate Transportation Conference Committee is expected to begin work in the coming days.
