Transportation officials representing trucking, rail and seaports took aim at priorities touted by Democrats over the past two years — including the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure, Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) — at the opening hearing of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on Wednesday. Issues raised centred on the lack of strategic infrastructure funding and inflation and its effect on fuel prices and the industry representatives urged that the money from IIJA is spent on making the nation’s transportation supply chain more efficient and resilient.
