Press Release: Texans for Traffic Relief applauds President Trump's SOTU remarks regarding infrastructure
AUSTIN, Texas—President Trump tonight made the following remarks during the State of the Union address regarding his infrastructure plan:
"Tonight, I’m calling on Congress to produce a bill that generates at least $1.5 trillion for the new infrastructure investment that our country so desperately needs. Every federal dollar should be leveraged by partnering with state and local governments, and, where appropriate, tapping into private sector investment, to permanently fix the infrastructure deficit. And we can do it."
In response, Texans for Traffic Relief spokesman David White released the following statement regarding President Trump's comments:
"We applaud President Trump's acknowledgment that private-sector investments are a critical part of any serious plan to address our nation's infrastructure challenges. We simply do not have the funds required to support our country's vast infrastructure needs. Allowing the private sector to help us improve our roadways when it is in the best interest of taxpayers is the right move."
