Transportation Chairman James Oberstar (D-MN) said, “we heard very clearly from the major transit agencies in this counrty. They have options for buses. They have options for railcars that could be exercised within days.” Manufacturers can ramp up production and create jobs all across the county…
Oregon’s Peter DeFazio: “Americans are loving their transit systems to death. There’s $160 billion of deferred maintenance on these systems… there are 10,000 options for new buses, buses made in America. They can’t be executed because our transit systems don’t have the money.” Rep. Gene Green (D-TX), mentioned light rail in Houston. “This bill must be a jobs bill. The [Chicago Transit Authority] head … said she could spend $500 million tomorrow” putting people to work, added Dan Lipinski of Illinois. “Nothing will create more jobs than funding transportation infrastructure,” said Staten Island’s new Congressman, Democrat Michael McMahon.” —Nadler transit amendment passes on voice vote
