Press Release

WASHINGTON – Yesterday, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) announced that six of the Member Designated Projects he submitted to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure have been included in the INVEST in America Act, a transformative $547 billion surface transportation reauthorization bill that seeks to modernize our roads, bridges, transit, and more. The legislation, which passed out of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, includes nearly $20 million in federal resources for projects in California’s 33rd Congressional District.

“As a Member of Congress, a critical part of my job is advocating for communities in my district. I’m pleased that six of the transportation projects I submitted to the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee have been included in this much-needed transportation package. If signed into law, this funding will help ensure people in my district can travel safely, promote tourism in our beautiful area, and protect our natural wonders. I will continue to advocate for the needs of Californians.”
