Apr 30, 2009 Floor Statement

Madam Speaker,

In February, I introduced and the House passed a resolution supporting the goals of “National Girls and Women in Sports Day.”  National Girls and Women in Sports Day works to celebrate female athletes’ achievements, acknowledge the positive influence of sports participation in women’s lives, and urge equality and access for women in sports.

Madam Chairwoman,

Thank you for calling this hearing today. Our passenger rail and freight rail infrastructure needs have received increasing attention over the last few months, through the high speed rail initiative, and as we push for clean transportation alternatives for people and goods.
