Congressman Chris Pappas, D-N.H., has fought as part of a bipartisan effort to restore $37.8 million in federal highway infrastructure money for the Granite State.
Now he’s working to make sure the state gets its fair share in the next round to be rolled out next year.
If Congress did not act, states were facing a Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act provision that would have rescinded $7.6 billion in federal-aid highway contract authority. This would have left the state unable to do some projects as part of its 10-year plan.
