Infrastructure

The Internet is a ubiquitous utility often with only one provider in most markets. Due to this oligopoly, consumers need to be protected from predatory and unethical practices, such as ISPs promoting their services/products while diminishing access to the competitors.

Infrastructure

America's infrastructure is in desperate need of investment, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. The ASCE estimates the United States needs to spend some $4.5 trillion by 2025 to fix the country's roads, bridges, dams, levees and other infrastructure. I will offer a Senate bill within my first year for $2 trillion to improve our D+ infrastructure that will generate millions of jobs to jump start America's economy.

Infrastructure

Louisiana’s infrastructure is crumbling. The federal government has long promised to fix America’s failing infrastructure, but those promises have largely gone unfulfilled. Washington has spent years talking about a comprehensive infrastructure bill. We need to act. In the Senate, I will work to build a smarter, faster, cleaner infrastructure system, including new roads, bridges, subsurface infrastructure, and a renewed investment in public transit. We’ve talked long enough. It’s time for America to roll up our sleeves and start building again.

Infrastructure

Local governments know the needs of their communities better than Washington. Congress can help empower Mayors and Parish Presidents to plug the digital holes in their communities. The Federal government should expand grants to incentivise private businesses to fill existing gaps, creating competition in underserved communities. This will not only improve education and spur economic development; it will also make telehealth more accessible in rural areas.
