Congressman Greg Pence (R-Indiana) joined the Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (REMSA) and its member Midwest Mole to tour the latter’s headquarters in Greenfield, Ind.
Pence spoke with company leaders, employees and rail industry representatives about transportation infrastructure and the short line tax credit at the REMSA-coordinated the event.
First elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018, Pence serves on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he sits on the Subcommittee on Railroads and oversees the economic and safety regulation of freight and passenger railroads. Notably, he is the older brother of United States Vice President Mike Pence.
Midwest Mole is a trenchless technology company that specializes in railroad construction services, shaft installations, hydro-excavations, heavy transportation and open cut services.
“I am truly grateful to Midwest Mole for giving me the opportunity to come and meet the team,” Pence said. “We enjoyed a great discussion centered around priorities that will continue to make our economy even stronger. I am a proud co-sponsor of the BRACE Act, which would make permanent the short line tax credit. The hardworking Hoosiers at Midwest Mole also understand that it is critical that Congress enact the USMCA. Meetings like these are invaluable as I represent the Sixth District of Indiana in Washington, D.C. Thank you to everyone at Midwest Mole.”
