Governor Issues Statement on Transportation
Governor Martin O’Malley issued the following statement on March 29 after the passage of the Transportation Infrastructure Investment Act of 2013:
“With the passage of the Transportation Infrastructure Investment Act today, we will support more than 57,000 jobs, ease traffic congestion, and build a 21st century transportation network.
“Maryland has now recovered nearly 95 percent of the jobs lost during the Bush recession, and today’s vote will help us put even more families back to work.
“Thanks to the extraordinary leadership of Senate President Miller, House Speaker Busch and their colleagues in the General Assembly, Maryland is poised to create jobs and expand opportunity.”
