Congressman Turner released the following statement after the House passed the Conference Report accompanying H.R. 22 – Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act.
“I am proud to be a voice for the Dayton region and I know firsthand how important transit funding is for the city and its residents. This bill will help level the playing field for Southwest Ohio’s transit systems. While the seven state set-aside remains in place, my efforts have led to increased funding for competitive grant opportunities for transit systems in Ohio and all fifty states to compete for these funds on their own merits.”
