Infrastructure and Transportation

Colorado is the nation’s 8th largest state, extending nearly 300 miles from north to south and nearly 400 miles from east to west. $323 billion in goods are shipped to and from Colorado annually. 75% of these goods are carried by trucks on Colorado roads. Colorado’s transportation infrastructure supports 77,308 full-time jobs and $3.4 billion annually. With nearly 70,000 new residents last year, Colorado is the 7th fastest-growing state in the U.S. Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District comprises 47+% of the entire state of Colorado.

Only 6% of this administration’s $2.3 trillion so-called infrastructure plan goes to roads and bridges. The rest goes to climate change, increasing government bureaucracy, and unrelated liberal wish-list items. I introduced the America’s Infrastructure Modernization (AIM) Act to offer a targeted, efficient infrastructure plan that works for America. The AIM Act would reallocate $650 billion of the remaining $2.2 trillion of unspent COVID funds to build roads, bridges, airports, ports, and other real infrastructure projects. There is no reason to increase taxes and waste trillions of dollars on a leftist slush fund when we have the ability to deliver real infrastructure results for the American people without raising their taxes.
