Congressman Rodney Davis of Taylorville has been named a ranking member of the Subcommittee on Highways and Transits.
He says being able to work that closely on infrastructure makes him hopeful he can make a difference in improving what is a crumbling system in America.
Governing for the people of central Illinois and the entire country isn't as tough as it may sound. According to Congressman Davis, if central Illinois benefits from a new infrastructure plan then the whole country will too.
Davis is optimistic the subcommittee will take a bipartisan approach and get things done to improve roads and bridges across the nation.
