WASHINGTON, DC (January 26, 2023) — Congresswoman Valerie Foushee (NC-04) was appointed to serve on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure in the 118th Congress.

“I am honored to serve on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure,” said Congresswoman Valerie Foushee. “As a Member of Congress who represents a rapidly growing district, I understand the growing pains that many communities across the country are feeling and know how critical it is for our country to have robust and resilient infrastructure, and accessible and reliable transportation systems. I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Committee to address our nation’s transportation and infrastructure needs for the American people.”

“Congresswoman Valerie Foushee was elected as a champion for economic opportunities for her community, and building a cleaner, greener and more accessible transportation system is a key part of creating the kind of good jobs that build a thriving middle class,” said Ranking Member Rick Larsen (WA-02). “With years of experience representing the people of North Carolina at the state and local level, Congresswoman Foushee knows what it takes to deliver for her constituents, and I look forward to helping her do just that on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.”

The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure has jurisdiction over all modes of transportation: aviation, maritime and waterborne transportation, highways, bridges, mass transit, and railroads. The Committee also has jurisdiction over other aspects of our national infrastructure, such as clean water and waste water management, the transport of resources by pipeline, flood damage reduction, the management of federally owned real estate and public buildings, the development of economically depressed rural and urban areas, disaster preparedness and response, and hazardous materials transportation.
