District 7 Rep. Rob Woodall will serve on this year’s House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee for the 116th Congress.
“I am committed to strengthening Georgia’s infrastructure, supporting local job creators, and ensuring safe and efficient travel and commerce across our country,” Woodall said in a news release. “I’m honored to advocate for the 7th District on this committee and will continue working towards making our transportation systems stronger.”
Previously on the committee, Woodall was part of drafting the FAST Act, which established a $184 million competitive grant program to speed up construction of new express lanes on Ga. 400.
He has also written legislation to protect the state’s water supply from congressional intervention. He is also a member of the Rules Committee.
Woodall was chosen by ranking member Rep. Sam Graves, of Missouri.
“Infrastructure is a top priority for the President and the Congress, and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee is where we can find common ground,” Graves said in a news release. “Representative Rob Woodall has proven himself to be an effective and dedicated champion on these critical issues, and I look forward to continue working with him to improve our infrastructure in Georgia and throughout the nation.”
