This is the June 30, 2021 hearing on "Transportation Investments for Solving the Climate Crisis," held before the House of Representatives Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. From the opening statement of Kathy Castor: "The INVEST [Investing in a New Vision for the Environment and Surface Transportation] in America Act, which the House is debating today, takes important steps to clean up our transportation sector, including investing more than $8 billion in highway transit and rail projects that will reduce carbon pollution. It also invests in programs to mitigate the threats posed by extreme weather before disasters strike and it will expand clean transportation choices for millions of Americans. It is all part of President Biden's vision for solving the climate crisis which he outlined earlier this year in the American Jobs Plan. [...] Today, we will discuss how we can use this historic opportunity to modernize the transportation sector in a way that reduces pollution, builds resilience, centers environmental justice, and strengthens our economy." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Margaret Anderson Kelliher, Bill Van Amburg, Robert Bryce, and Beth Osborne.
