However, despite this legislation having support on both sides of the aisle, other members of Congress have taken the opportunity to attack those that stood up and voted to pass this legislation. I specifically want to acknowledge 13 Republican members of the House of Representatives. “The following 13 members put the needs of their constituents first and their leadership will save lives. Since their votes, they have received calls for removal from their committee assignments from their colleagues and some have even received phone calls with death threats to their office: Rep. Don Bacon (R-Neb.) Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Penn.) Rep. David McKinley (R-W.Va.) Rep. Andrew Garbarino (R-N.Y.) Rep. John Katko (R-N.Y.) Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.) Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.) Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-Ohio) Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) Rep Jeff Van Drew (R-N.J.) Rep Chris Smith (R-N.J.) Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) “There are many others, from both parties, who deserve praise for their determination to push this bill across the line. ATSSA commends all of these members for doing the right thing and voting to make America’s roads safer.” Previous Article ATSSA Town Hall on infrastructure package set for Nov. 18 Next Article US Court of Appeals sets oral argument date for FCC case Print 1156 Rate this article: No rating Tags: roadway safety Stacy Tetschner IIJA Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act Please login or register to post comments.
