Member-Designated Transportation Projects

This year, the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure (T&I) plans to advance surface transportation authorization legislation, building on H.R. 2, the Moving Forward Act, from the 116th Congress. Chairman Peter DeFazio announced that the T&I Committee will formally accept requests for projects from House Members.

The T&I Committee process for considering member projects is separate and distinct from the House Committee on Appropriations’ process for considering Community Project Funding requests. Projects funded through the surface transportation authorization will be funded directly from the Highway Trust Fund, and they do not require a separate or subsequent appropriation.

Members are required to publicly list any projects submitted to the T&I Committee and also to certify that neither they nor any immediate family member have a financial interest in the submitted projects.

Please note:  A request submitted by Congresswoman Wild to the Committee does NOT guarantee the project will be funded.
