Congressman Sanford Bishop

Representing the 2nd District of Georgia

Transportation

Investing in our nation’s transportation infrastructure will create millions of jobs and boost economic activity.  I will continue to fight for Georgia’s Second Congressional District to receive its fair share of funding to improve its highways, roads, and bridges.  I support more highway-related construction jobs, reduced gasoline prices, and the increased use of biofuels.  I also support efforts to make our roads safer, increase fuel efficiency, and create an Infrastructure Bank to finance much needed investments in our nation’s roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, airports, railways, ports, broadband, and power grids.
