"I will continue to fight for Maryland's fair share with smart investments that create jobs and keep travelers on the move and reduce pollution and congestion. Funds in the federal checkbook for Maryland's highways, roads and mass transit systems means more than just transportation – it means residents and visitors in Maryland can live, work, and play throughout the state in safety.  " - U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.)

As a member of the Transportation Appropriations Subcommittee, Senator Mikulski believes we must modernize our nation's infrastructure, including our roads, bridges, and transit systems.
