Sen. Barbara Boxer talked about green jobs in Santa Clarita on Monday.

The California Democrat toured the city's transit maintenance facility, which uses clean energy.

Her visit comes as lawmakers consider a bill that would reauthorize the nation's transportation programs for the next two years.

The measure would sustain nearly two million jobs nationwide - 170, 000 of which are in California.
