Funding for Transportation and Infrastructure

If you’ve sat in traffic on the 91, the 10, the 15, or the 215, you know the dire need for increased infrastructure funding for the Inland Empire and Coachella Valley. Our current representative, Ken Calvert, voted against the bipartisan infrastructure law that will provide millions of dollars for local transportation and infrastructure projects, such as the I-15 corridor project in Corona and the $12 million needed to widen Bundy Road in Menifee.

Our communities deserve a fair share of federal support to fully fund the transportation and water infrastructure projects we need for efficient travel, business growth, and clean and reliable water. Unlike Ken Calvert, I would have proudly supported the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act to bring critical investments home to California. Fortunately, that bill passed into law supported by both Republicans and Democrats and is already bringing valuable funding to our District, such as:

  • $60 million to the Coachella Valley Water District for irrigation canal improvements – a project that will help our local farmers;
  • $100 million in investments to improve I-10;
  • $17 million to the Palm Springs International Airport for improvements to support growth in air travel for our region.

This legislation should be the start, not the end, of our investments in our infrastructure. I’ll continue to push for investments that will improve our economy, help businesses grow, and bolster our quality of life here in Riverside County.
