Rep. Greg Stanton is a member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, serves as Vice Chair of the Highways and Transit subcomittee and serves on the Water Resources and Environment and Aviation subcommittees. 

Transportation and Infrastructure has jurisdiction over all modes of transportation: aviation, maritime and waterborne transportation, highways, bridges, mass transit, and railroads.  The Committee also has jurisdiction over other aspects of our national infrastructure, such as clean water and waste water management, the transport of resources by pipeline, flood damage reduction, the management of federally owned real estate and public buildings, the development of economically depressed rural and urban areas, disaster preparedness and response, and hazardous materials transportation.
Prior to representing Arizona’s ninth district, Stanton served as Phoenix mayor, where he made transportation a top priority during his time in office. In 2015, Stanton successfully led one of the most ambitious transportation initiatives in the country—a bipartisan, voter-supported plan that is now working to triple Phoenix’s light rail system, expand bus service, and improve thousands of miles of roadways over the next 35 years. 
As mayor, Stanton also drove millions of dollars in investment to renovate Sky Harbor—including in Sky Train, which connects passengers to light rail. His role on the Aviation subcommittee will allow him to continue to advocate for the multiple airports that serve the ninth district and the greater Phoenix metro, including Sky Harbor International Airport and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. And through the Highways and Transit subcommittees, Stanton will continue to focus on the region’s growing light rail system and critical highways including I-11, which connects Phoenix to Las Vegas, and State Routes 24 and 30 in the metro area.
And as a largely desert state, Arizona has water infrastructure needs that are increasingly urgent because of the impact of climate change.  Stanton will continue to fight for the available resources available to meet these infrastructure needs to combat drought and deliver water.
Rep. Stanton is also a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and he serves on the Western Hemisphere subcommittee.
The Foreign Affairs Committee is responsible for oversight and legislation relating to foreign assistance, national security developments, war powers, treaties, commerce, exports, and management and operations of the State Department. The committee is also responsible for deployment of the U.S. Armed Forces, peacekeeping, peace enforcement, and enforcement of United Nations sanctions.
The Western Hemisphere subcommittee also takes on international economic trade policy, commerce with other countries, and international investment policy. The committee conducts special oversight on international financial monetary institutions, the Export-Import Bank, customs, civilian security, transnational organized crime, and preventing violence by states and non-state actors.
Rep. Stanton is a member of the New Democrat Coalition
The New Democrat Coalition is made up of nearly 100 forward-thinking Democrats who are committed to pro-economic growth, pro-innovation, and fiscally responsible policies. New Democrats are solutions-oriented and committed to bridging the gap between left and right by challenging outmoded partisan approaches to governing. New Democrats believe the challenges ahead are too great for members of Congress to refuse to cooperate purely out of partisanship.
