April 29, 2014 03:35 PM

Dana Hook, P.E., Vice President at CDM Smith and Chair of WTS International, the association whose mission is to build the future of transportation through the global advancement of women, released a statement regarding the Grow America Act that was sent to Congress yesterday, April 29, 2014:

WTS International applauds the Administration for recognizing that growing transportation is an investment in the entire economy of the United States. This investment will substantially increase the opportunities for all of our transportation professionals to grow their careers and provide incentive to attract the employees of the future.

USDOT's Peter M. Rogoff, Acting Under Secretary for Transportation Policy, has announced that Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx has formally transmitted the GROW AMERICA Act to Congress. The Grow America Act is a $302 billion, four-year transportation reauthorization proposal that provides increased, stable funding for U.S. highways, bridges, transit, and rail systems. The GROW AMERICA Act will provide states, local governments, and construction workers with the certainty to effectively plan major projects, support millions of good paying jobs over the next several years, and improve the country’s global competitiveness.
