Rebuilding Iowa's Infrastructure

As a member of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee and Vice-Chair of the Highways & Transit Subcommittee, Congresswoman Finkenauer understands the importance of repairing Iowa’s crumbling infrastructure which is one of the best returns on investment. Our bridges are the most structurally deficient in the nation and Congresswoman Finkenauer will work with anyone who is serious about investing in our nation’s infrastructure.

Iowa’s extensive network of roads, bridges, and inland waterways are critical to our economy—linking farmers, manufacturers, and small businesses to new customers and markets. Investments in our infrastructure should not be limited to transportation though. We also need high-speed internet to help Iowans compete in the 21st century economy as well as repair our schools, hospitals, water systems, and fire stations to help our communities thrive.
