News from Representative Sánchez

   

Dear Friend,

Our roads and infrastructure are in desperate need of repair and innovation. Each day, people in our community drive to school or work on crowded roads that are riddled with potholes and over bridges that are structurally deficient. Our students attend schools in buildings that are outdated or unsafe. One of my top priorities in Congress is to support a serious national investment in rebuilding and modernizing our country, one that pays for itself by stimulating the economy and creating good-paying jobs.

I am pleased that the administration and Congressional leaders of both parties are committed to passing an impactful infrastructure package that would assist states and local governments with funding the projects they so desperately need to complete. Funding our roads, bridges, drinking water and other public resources is not, and should not be, a partisan issue. Everyone relies on our infrastructure and it is the responsibility of the government to provide the funds necessary to maintain our roads. As a member of the Ways and Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over infrastructure funding, I continue advocating for a comprehensive package that provides states and local governments with adequate funding, so that we can rebuild and modernize our nation’s crumbling infrastructure.

In addition to my legislative efforts, I will never stop fighting to bring back much-needed federal dollars for projects in our community. Recently, I helped secure millions in federal dollars to help support key projects in our community such as the Durfee Avenue Grade Separation Project in Pico Rivera, as well as the Rosecrans/Marquardt project in Santa Fe Springs, one of the most dangerous intersections in California.

Lastly, it is important that we provide ample funding for other infrastructure safety projects, such as the water safety project at the Whittier Narrows Dam in Pico Rivera. The Army Corps of Engineers considers the dam to be among the highest priority safety projects in the country as we experience more frequent extreme weather conditions. That is why I am fighting for sufficient funding for this project, as well as working with the Army Corps of Engineers to mitigate disruption caused by construction during the dam’s restoration.

Sincerely,

Linda T. Sánchez
Member of Congress

Building Support in Washington

Image

I am working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to build support for sweeping infrastructure legislation. The American people expect their elected officials to make this a priority, and I am determined to deliver results for our community.

 

Whittier Narrows Dam Update

Image

Earlier this year, I toured the Whittier Narrows Dam with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. As one of the most critical dam safety projects in the country, the Whittier Narrows Dam requires proper funding from the federal government to make much-needed repairs. That is why I led a request for over $100 Million to fund dam safety projects, including the Whittier Narrows Dam

 

Hearing From You

I held my latest Coffee with the Congresswoman event in La Mirada this past weekend. Thank you to everyone who attended, as well as Cassidy's Corner Cafe for hosting. I always enjoy hearing from members of our community and answering questions about what’s going on in Washington. For those who weren’t able to attend this weekend, be on the lookout for upcoming events. I may be in your city next, and I’d love to grab coffee with you.
