Pay for It Yourself


RR052319 HighwayBillOct. 23, 2019 – Is this what it has come to with the federal government? White House Economic Adviser Larry Kudlow told attendees at North American Infrastructure Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., "We’ll cut red tape for you, but don’t expect a check from us. Folks, we will give you the permits, if you can figure out how to pay for it, go on ahead and do it.” In the speech, Kudlow emphasized that President Donald Trump is focused on deregulation and speeding up federal permitting to kickstart rail, airport and other infrastructure projects. However, Trump campaigned in 2016 on a promise for a $1 trillion infrastructure plan. It is not acceptable to abdicate responsibility for our deteriorating roads and bridges!
