Marc understands that a strong transportation system that keeps pace with our population growth is essential for the Metroplex to stay competitive in today’s economy. Without effective transportation infrastructure, North Texas businesses are at a competitive disadvantage and local families will suffer increased traffic jams, vehicle damage, and unsafe roads. That is why Marc has fought to bring much- needed federal transportation funding home to Texas. He will continue to fight for the resources to improve the highways, bridges and transit systems we rely on.
