WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, members of the Bipartisan Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues joined Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao to discuss the future of infrastructure in the United States.

Representatives Lois Frankel (D-FL) and Susan Brooks (R-IN), co-chairs of the Congressional Caucus for Women’s Issues, provided the following statements:

“It was an honor to meet with Transportation Secretary Chao to discuss the need to repair our crumbling roads and bridges and modernize our infrastructure,” said Frankel. “These investments put people to work, and where transportation goes, communities grow.”

“Indiana truly is the crossroads of America,” said Brooks. “In order to ensure our goods can be transported efficiently and families can travel safely from one place to the next, it is critical that our infrastructure is modernized. I’d like to thank Transportation Secretary Chao for sharing her insights and expertise as we look for ways in Congress to improve our nation’s infrastructure and invest in the future of our roads, bridges, airports and more.”
