Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg will discuss his department’s $108.5 billion budget request at a Senate appropriations subcommittee hearing on Thursday, March 23. Buttigieg is scheduled to testify at the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development hearing titled, “Review of the President’s Fiscal Year 2024 Funding Request and Budge Justification for the U.S. Department of Transportation.” The hearing is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Eastern on Thursday. According to Buttigieg’s “Budget Highlights” document, the 2021 infrastructure law and the Inflation Reduction Act have provided “historic opportunities” to invest in the nation’s infrastructure. Buttigieg wrote that the $108.5 billion request “will build on our tremendous progress by prioritizing important infrastructure improvements, innovative safety interventions, key systems modernizations and a multitude of new and continuing grant programs that invest in transportation projects that impact American people’s lives.”
