McCarthy, Fong argue for state infrastructure in op-ed piece

In an opinion piece, published in Sunday’s San Francisco Chronicle, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Bakersfield) and state Assemblyman Vince Fong (R-Bakersfield) argue that the state of California needs to work with the federal government in order to pay for the state’s massive infrastructure needs.

It’s an opinion both have shared repeatedly, especially Fong, who has authored legislation to direct state fuel taxes, vehicle licensing fees back toward transportation funding.

From the op-ed:

Decades of ignoring our infrastructure needs have caught up to us in an undeniable way. While important federal bipartisan changes were made late last year to help pump more water to communities that need it, this past month has demonstrated that our state’s infrastructure must be strengthened to take advantage of wet winters so we can to protect against future drought.
