Senator Warner believes that we must renew and revitalize our nation’s infrastructure if we want to compete globally in the 21st century. Investing in our outdated roads, bridges, ports, energy grid and broadband networks would create jobs, reduce traffic, and grow the economy.
Senator Warner has introduced bipartisan legislation to create an innovative Infrastructure Financing Authority, which would supplement federal transportation investment programs by assisting communities in leveraging private sector investments to fund worthwhile infrastructure projects. Senator Warner has also been a leader in encouraging innovation in the burgeoning unmanned systems industry, and pushing for collaborating and experimentation in order to safety integrate unmanned maritime, ground and aerial systems into existing infrastructure networks.
