ON THE ISSUES

Rebuilding Ohio’s Infrastructure

An overhaul of America’s infrastructure is long overdue. A state with strong infrastructure attracts economic opportunities. I am the only candidate in the Republican Primary who supported Senator Rob Portman’s commonsense infrastructure bill that would have funded repairs on Brent Spence Bridge, extended the Appalachian Highway Development System and also expanded broadband for tele-health, agriculture and learning. Every other candidate pledged to vote against this funding and the tens of thousands of local jobs in Ohio it would have created. In the U.S. Senate, I will oppose bloated Democrat wishlists that contribute to our nation’s debt while also keeping up the fight for targeted infrastructure that is paid for, does not contribute to inflation and directly improves Ohio energy production, roads, bridges and airports to boost economic growth and American competitiveness against China.

  • Dolan delivered over $170 million in capital dollars for community-based projects across Ohio to support parks, schools and local priorities.
  • Dolan worked on the two-year transportation budget to invest over $8 billion to fund the construction and maintenance of the state’s transportation system.
