Rep. Gallego Member-Designated Transportation Projects

Background

The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure (T&I) will advance surface transportation authorization legislation later this spring, building on H.R. 2, the “Moving Forward Act,” from the 116th Congress. As part of this process, the committee has provided an opportunity for Members to submit requests for highway and transit project designations.

The T&I Committee process for considering member projects is separate and distinct from the House Committee on Appropriations’ process for considering Community Project Funding requests. Projects funded through the surface transportation authorization will be funded directly from the Highway Trust Fund, and they do not require a separate or subsequent appropriation. You can learn more here.

Transparency and Accountability

To ensure oversight, transparency, and accountability throughout the process, Members who submit a Member Designated Project request must also post the request online to their official House.gov website. Members must include the project name, location of the project, project sponsor, and requested amount for each request posted online. Member Designated Project requests that are not publicly posted on the Member’s official House.gov website will not be considered by the Committee. Additionally, a signed certification form indicating that neither a Member, their spouse, nor immediate family have a financial interest in the project and an explanation as to why it is an appropriate use of taxpayer funds will be required for submission.

The Committee will also publicly post all submitted Member requests on the Committee website following the closure of the database.
