    Sharing the road with byciclists can be a challenge, but shouldn't put anyone at harm's way. That's why bike Lanes & trails should be designed with all riders & enthusiasts in mind. A safe & family oriented initiative that can help improve overall a more active quality of lifestyle for all as well as encourage less vehicles & pollutive emissions on the road for a cleaner & healthier environment.

    Public transit should be "permitted," not tax-funded. Contractors should be allowed to build roads and bridges without unnecessary government interference, knowing that even highly regulated projects have failed catastrophically. Buses and trains are giving way to private ride-sharing ventures like Uber and Lyft. Private commerce does a better job at getting people where they need to go.

    I don’t support anything government funded that could be funded via the private sector. That being said if a state, county, and/or a municipality want to fund a public transportation system; as a US senator I’d be against any federal funding.
