Ranking Member Larsen Praises Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for Making Federal and Tribal Lands More Accessible

Washington, D.C.—Today, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Rick Larsen (D-WA) released the follow statement after the Federal Highway Administration announced grant recipients for the Nationally Significant Federal Lands and Tribal Projects (NSFLTP) Program. The program provides funding for major construction and rehabilitation projects that improve access to federal and Tribal lands.

“From making Mud Valley Road safer and more reliable for the Cherokee Nation to replacing the National Park Service’s aging transit fleets with greener models for the Grand Canyon, today’s funding will improve access to federal and Tribal lands that Americans and communities count on,” Ranking Member Larsen said. “The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law continues to invest in cleaner, greener, safer, and more accessible infrastructure to improve the lives of all Americans.”
