From the start of his term, President Trump has voiced his support for investing in our nation’s infrastructure. I think we should take him up on his offer. In April, he showed his commitment when he issued two Executive Orders aimed at removing regulatory burdens and streamlining the process for building new energy infrastructure projects. Because we have less population to support redundancies, dependable infrastructure is especially significant in rural America.

There is no place like Nebraska, and my family has been fortunate to call it home for six generations. The experience of living in a rural area is something not found anywhere else.

My goal since coming to Congress is to provide solutions to these challenges and strengthen rural America for the future.
