“As a former mayor myself, I am thrilled to have someone who truly understands the needs of the communities I represent—and those across the country—as we work to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure for generations to come,” wrote Rep. Lawrence in the letter. “With the economic downturn caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, investing in infrastructure and good paying jobs are more imperative to Michigan's economic development than ever before.”

“As a representative for the Motor City, I look forward to your leadership at the Department in directing robust investment in our country’s aging infrastructure, and I am eager to work with you on shared transportation priorities important to my district and the state of Michigan,” Rep. Lawrence added. “As such, I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss areas for collaboration and how we can advance meaningful change that equitably serves all Americans. I also look forward to welcoming you and Chasten back to his home state so we can tour some of the outstanding automotive and infrastructure projects that the 14th District has to offer.”
