Senator Blumenthal supports major, historic investment in our nation’s crumbling infrastructure. We must continue to rebuild and repair Connecticut’s existing roads, bridges, airports, and maritime ports, as well as bring our transportation, water, and energy infrastructure into the twenty-first century. As a senior member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, Senator Blumenthal is a tireless advocate for developing and implementing new infrastructure initiatives and modern transportation systems. He has also fought for increased reliability and service along the Northeast Corridor—the most vital rail artery in the United States. In the Senate, he has been a leader in advancing considerable, innovative federal transportation funding to complete critical projects faster and employ more of our citizens.
