INFORMATION RELATED TO THE BILL:

  • “Rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure will require a workforce equipped with proper training,” said Langevin. “Securing funding to rebuild the roads and bridges that Americans rely on every day is just one challenge we face. We must also make sure that we have workers who are adequately prepared to get the job done. We need to take action to close the workforce gap that exists, and we can do that by putting Americans on pathways to valuable skills and good-paying jobs. I am proud that this bipartisan legislation also pushes to get ahead of changes in the transportation sector workforce that may result from the proliferation of new technologies, including autonomous vehicles.” (Source: Rep. Langevin, Press Release, 02/09/20)
