LOU ON THE ISSUES
Read below Lou's stance on Rebuilding our Infrastructure
Rebuilding our Infrastructure
As a former chairman of a subcommittee of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives, Barletta fully understands Pennsylvania’s needs. Our roads and bridges are in dire need of repair and refurbishing and have been neglected by Gov. Wolf’s administration. As governor, Barletta will lead a rebuilding of our infrastructure, creating good union jobs in the process.
Barletta has particular expertise in pre-disaster mitigation, having authored legislation signed by President Trump which reformed disaster preparedness and reduced the impact of natural disasters. As a mayor and member of Congress, Barletta saw the devastating effects of brutal storms and flooding and knows that pre-disaster mitigation is key. Emphasis on planning, elevating or hardening structures, and building flood walls can save lives and billions of dollars in property damage. As governor, Barletta will bring the same approach to Harrisburg.
