Every day, there are 200,000 crossings on the bridge over Conway Road on I-270 in St. Louis County, and over 90,000 on I-29 over Route AA just north of Kansas City.
Those bridges have something in common, and it's not a good look for Missouri.
They are two of over 3,300 "structurally deficient" bridges in our state, and 61,000 across the country.
We cannot build the businesses of the future using the roads, railways, seaports, and airports from the past century.
It's time for Congress to invest in America by putting people back to work rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure. But now it looks like they might not even get their act together before the Highway Trust Fund expires on July 31st.
Sign my petition urging Congress to extend the Highway Trust Fund before it expires on July 31st, and then get to work on long-term infrastructure funding.
Last week, my opponent, Republican Senator Roy Blunt bragged about how proud he was that 19 bills have been signed into law this year.
That's less than four bills a month, and it puts this Congress on pace to be one of the least productive in history. That's nothing to brag about.
It's time for Congress to get to work putting America back to work in good paying jobs that can support families. Extending the Highway Trust Fund would be a good start.
Thanks for signing my petition.
