Outside of our national security and the safety and security of our citizens, one of the most important roles of government is to build and maintain our national infrastructure.  A strong, reliable infrastructure promotes interstate commerce, creating economic growth and prosperity, which creates more jobs and stability for our families.  As Co-Chairman of the I-11 Caucus, I have focused on expanding I-11 into a full-blown interstate between Phoenix and Las Vegas, connecting two major metropolitan areas which remain the only major urban areas of their size that remain unlinked.  My work has focused on removing environmental obstacles while securing federal funding to make this project a reality.
