Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administration (EDA) awarded $2.4 million in grant funding to the city of Weed, Calif., for the construction of a roadway and additional infrastructure. The project is expected to create 80 jobs and leverage $12 million in private investment.

“Improving our outdated transportation infrastructure is one of my top priorities in Congress,” said LaMalfa. Completing projects like this one will allow regional businesses to operate more efficiently and would ultimately result in a boost to the local economy. Building new roads in rural America can only help small towns to thrive. These are the types of investments we need to continue making to see that happen.”

Congressman LaMalfa serves on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee's Subcommittee on Highways and Transit.
