Washington, DC – Ranking Member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Rick Larsen (D-WA), released the following statement after Rep. Sam Graves (R-MO) was selected as Chair of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure for the 118th Congress:

“Sam Graves and I came to Congress in the same class twenty-two years ago, and now I offer my congratulations to him on becoming the 20th Chair of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee,” Ranking Member Larsen said. “From reauthorization of the Federal Aviation Administration, the Coast Guard, and pipeline safety programs, to another Water Resources Development Act and implementation of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, we have a lot of work to do to keep the economy moving and to build a safer and more accessible transportation system. Sam has a well-deserved reputation for serious policy-making and good faith bipartisanship, and I look forward to a fruitful partnership in the 118th Congress.”
