Sen. Anthony Cannella Issues Statement on Senate Transportation and Housing Committee Hearing

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Senator Anthony Cannella (R-Ceres) today provided the following testimony to the California State Senate Transportation and Housing Committee during the informational hearing “How to Save the State Billions: Improving Megaproject Outcomes”:

“As an engineer, I know firsthand just how important it is to maintain public confidence in our transportation infrastructure. As the state continues to grow, we will be undertaking many more megaprojects affecting our water and transportation systems. It is important that we rise above partisanship and work together to craft an approach that avoids the kinds of mistakes that we are examining today so we can rebuild the credibility of Caltrans in the eyes of the public.

“I want to be able to learn from the mistakes on the Bay Bridge and work to implement the lessons learned on the development of any future megaprojects.”
