From our highways to our waterways, having a reliable and safe transportation system is critical to the safety, efficiency and economic development of South Louisiana.  Being on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and in a leadership position for the Subcommittee on Water Resources and Environment, I will work tirelessly to reduce the traffic problems facing our area.  Working with our local, state and congressional leadership, I will strive to achieve solutions in national transportation policy and local transportation challenges.
