Please see attached letter from Member of Congress Suzanne Bonamici, U.S. Senator Ron Wyden and U.S. Senator Jeff Merlkley, all supporting our efforts and encouraging TriMet to keep the Apprenticeship program.
Senators Wyden and Merkley are eager to see the Senate take on legislation that bolsters and expands apprenticeship opportunities. Both Senators sit on prominent committees that will consider the transportation reauthorization, with Senator Wyden as Chair of the Senate Finance Committee and Senator Merkley serving on both Appropriations and Environment and Public Works Committees. A central priority for this transportation reauthorization will be a strong investment in our transit workforce.
