Scott Kleeb on Technology

Democratic Challenger


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.

Double federal funding for basic research

Q: What policies would you support to ensure that America remains the world leader in innovation?

A: Fifty years ago, the launch of Sputnik sent shockwaves around the world. We responded with the National Defense Education Act. I believe we need a National Defense Education Act (NDEA) for the 21st Century. This starts with investing in the sciences and developing a new energy economy right here at home. It also means investing in our workforce and supporting lifelong education.
