Transportation

Critical to economic growth is a quality transportation infrastructure. Congressman Bishop understands that area prosperity and job creation requires this as new roads and highways and transportation facilities are essential to meet the needs of prospective industries and attendant population growth.

His vote for the Stimulus Bill was a vote for all his constituents as within it were funds for shoring up transportation infrastructure throughout the 2nd District. Additionally, when the Fiscal Year 2011 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations bill was passed, he made sure it included funding $500,000 for the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport Apron and Various Improvements in Albany and $450,000 for the North Bypass in Leesburg.
