Scott Kleeb: Invest in roadway infrastructure to help farm productivity

Invest in and modernize our infrastructure: Grain harvested in rural America must be picked up by trucks, driven to railcars, and then shipped around the world. Our roads and bridges, especially in rural America, are not keeping pace with our agricultural productivity. Between the increased cost of fuel, state-by-state road regulations that limit what truckers can haul, and the elimination of railroad branch lines, everyone from farmers to shipyard operators are paying more for less. Failure to invest in our infrastructure--especially in rural areas--affects public safety as well. Scott Kleeb believes that we must modernize our critical infrastructure, including roads, bridges, and railways, and bring down the cost of fuel.
