A panel in the House of Representatives recently approved proposals to boost the freight workforce and increase efficiency along commercial corridors.
On May 23, the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee advanced to the floor of the chamber a legislative package that responded to long-standing supply chain concerns.
“The Biden administration’s big-spending, anti-energy agenda led to sky-high inflation and exacerbated a critical supply chain crisis,” Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Sam Graves (R-Mo.) said. “Today, the committee took action to strengthen our supply chain in numerous ways by removing regulatory barriers, improving supply chain efficiency and promoting smarter infrastructure investment.”
