Gardner Advances Colorado Priorities in Highway Bill

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement today following the Senate’s passage of a bipartisan, long-term highway bill:

“As Colorado’s first Senator in nearly 40 years to serve on the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, I was excited to ensure that Colorado has the voice it deserves on transportation. In this bill, the longest-term highway bill the Senate has passed in nearly a decade, I was able to secure numerous provisions that pave the way for Colorado’s transportation future. 

“Advancing the expansion of North I-25, ensuring that Colorado’s fast-growing population is properly prioritized, and developing new and innovative technology are some of my top transportation priorities. We were able to make progress on all of them in the bill passed by the Senate today. While an agreement between the House and the Senate on a long-term bill has yet to be reached, I look forward to advocating for Colorado every single step of the way."
