Dallas South News Wire

Yesterday Congresswoman Johnson was named as a conferee to the Transportation Reauthorization bill.  As conferee, she will work with other House and Senate conferees to produce legislation that will ultimately be sent to the President for signature.

Congresswoman Johnson was selected for the conference because of her position as Ranking Member on the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, which has jurisdiction over the research and development  activities of the Department of Transportation, as well as surface and water transportation research, development, and demonstration programs.  She is also the most senior Texan on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

Congresswoman Johnson noted, “ I have served on the Transportation Committee for 20 years, and know how critical it is for state DOTs, transit agencies, and local municipalities to have a long-term transportation authorization in place in order to plan infrastructure projects.  I will use my role as conferee to advocate for the transportation policies that work for my district, and for Texas as a whole.”
