Schumer Statement on President Trump’s Infrastructure Proposal

February 12, 2018
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer released the following statement regarding President Trump’s infrastructure proposal:  
“The president’s infrastructure proposal would do very little to make our ailing infrastructure better, but would put unsustainable burdens on our local government and lead to Trump tolls all over the country, all while undermining important protections like Buy America. It is a plan to appease his political allies, not to rebuild the country. Democrats want to work in a bipartisan way to improve our infrastructure, which is why we put forward a real plan that would expand access to high-speed internet across the country, rebuild our roads and bridges, and modernize our electric grid while creating millions of good-paying, middle-class jobs. Unfortunately, the president’s plan falls short on all these fronts.”
