Mesa Mayor Scott Smith will be part of a signing ceremony at the White House on Friday, when President Barack Obama will sign a two-year transportation bill. Smith, vice president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, has advocated for a variety of infrastructure investment and has supported Transportation Bill 4348.

The Senate voted 74-19 in favor of the bill, and the House approved it 373-52. The bill is designed to repair deteriorating roads and bridges.

“The passage of a transportation bill has long been a top priority of the nation’s mayors and we thank Congress for working together to accomplish this task,” Smith said.
