Transportation

We cannot build a 21st century economy without investing in research, innovation, education and infrastructure. Smart investments will increase our competitiveness in a global economy and help create jobs both now and in the future. As a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I am in a unique position to support local infrastructure projects in New York that will create jobs, grow our economy, and benefit Hudson Valley small businesses.

For more information concerning my work and views on transportation issues, please contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.

Originally authored following the tragic Metro-North derailment in December 2013, Rep. Maloney’s Commuter Rail Passenger Safety Act would help finance positive train control systems for commuter rail systems. Passed in the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure by voice vote, this legislation would make all positive train control installations "priority projects" as part of the $35 billion Railroad Rehabilitation & Improvement Financing (RRIF) Program that currently provides loans and loan guarantees to railroads.
