Jan. 20, 2017 – Commerce secretary nominee Wilbur Ross told senators that he sees a need for federal government spending on infrastructure – a week after DOT nominee Elaine Chao said she thinks Trump wants federal dollars to be a part of his infrastructure plan. "I think there will be some necessity for it, whether it's in the form of guarantees or direct investment or whatever, but it's really for the Congress and the president to figure out what should be the quantity of it and what should be the nature of the projects," Ross told Senate Commerce Committee members at his confirmation hearing.
