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.

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) questioned the Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx on improving safety measures at rail grade crossing. Secretary Foxx made it clear that “there is not enough money in the system to help us [relocate and separate grade crossings] even on some of the highest danger areas,” and the Department of Transportation needs additional resources to “attack that problem as comprehensively as we need to.” In this year’s budget request, the Department of Transportation listed railroad intersections as one of the “three most pressing rail safety issues.”
