The Neosho Business and Industrial Foundation works to attract businesses and jobs to the area. Thursday afternoon, the group spent time discussing the importance of having adequate transportation infrastructure in order for the area to expand. They are hoping the congressman will support legislature that will advance their efforts in growing the local economy. 
"When I go back to Washington and we're working on these different problems, I can say, 'Hey, I know that the north-south is okay, but we need more work on the east to west. And we need more intermodal facilities in our part of the country, and things like that.' So, it really does a lot of good to come and have these localized meetings," said U.S. Rep. Billy Long, Missouri 7th District.
Transportation funding across the country has been secured for this summer. The Transportation Infrastructure Committee is currently working on a long-term bill.
