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.

Following the Department of Transportation’s Emergency Order and Safety Advisory issued today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) continued to call for the Office of Management and Budget to expedite the extensive rules on crude by rail. Today, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration and Federal Railroad Administration issued a Safety Advisory urging railroads to use the most protective type of rail tank cars to ship the oil and to avoid, when possible, using older model DOT-111 tanker cars. In addition, The Department of Transportation’s Emergency Order will require railroads to immediately notify State Emergency Response Commissions about the operation of trains carrying Bakken crude oil through states like New York.

May 6, 2014 Press Release
U.S. Senators Charles E. Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand, and U.S. Representatives Nita Lowey and Sean Patrick Maloney today announced nearly $3.8 million in federal funds to elevate four locations along interstate 87 in the towns of Tuxedo and Ramapo in Orange and Rockland Counties to minimize the risk of future flooding. Project sites are between mile posts 39.77 and 39.53, between mile posts 37.92 and 37.76, between mile posts 32.2 and 32.1, and between mile posts 30.68 and 31.1. This grant, which is being awarded as part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) will offset 75% of the total project costs. Severe and persistent rainfall last year led to severe flooding of the Ramapo River, which led to the underwater submersion of portions of Interstate 87 in Tuxedo and Ramapo for several days. The $3,765,503.00 grant will allow construction to start on the much needed infrastructure project in Orange and Rockland Counties.
