WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), Chairman of the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations Subcommittee today hosted a roundtable on the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), and was joined by Acting Administrator K. Jane Williams and Executive Director Matthew Welbes.

“I was pleased to welcome Federal Transit Administration Acting Administrator Williams and Executive Director Welbes to discuss transit and numerous FTA programs, including the Capital Investment Grant (CIG) program. CIG is a key component in the development of local infrastructure plans, such as Miami-Dade County's SMART plan. FTA Acting Administrator Williams acknowledged how difficult these grants can be.
