Balderson Reintroduces Legislation to Advance Transportation System Technologies
Washington, February 18, 2021
WASHINGTON – Congressman Troy Balderson (R-OH) today reintroduced legislation to spur innovation, improve efficiency, and promote advanced technology in America’s transportation systems. The Strengthening Methods to Advance Research and Technology (SMART) in Transportation Act, would foster a safer, more efficient national transportation system by authorizing key U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) programs, and would ensure rural communities have a seat at the table by requiring no less than 20 percent of grant funds be reserved for projects serving rural areas.
“Congressman Balderson’s bill will strengthen Ohio’s national leadership position in the development and implementation of smart mobility solutions,” said Howard Wood, DriveOhio Executive Director. “The bill reflects a deep appreciation of our world-class automotive research and development ecosystem, with the Transportation Research Center, US 33 Smart Mobility Corridor, and OSU Center for Automotive Research. As we develop the transportation system of the 21st century, Ohioans will have an economic advantage in the global economy due to this legislation.”
