Chairman Crowley Statement on President Trump’s Infrastructure Proposal

February 12, 2018

(Queens, N.Y.) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on President Trump’s infrastructure proposal:

“President Trump’s infrastructure proposal falls far short of the investment our country desperately needs and deserves. At a time when our bridges and roads are crumbling and our schools and hospitals are severely antiquated, the president’s empty proposal lacks vision. It will force states into debt while robbing critical funds from vital transportation programs that keep America moving forward.

“America needs a 21st Century Marshall Plan that will give hard-working men and women career-building jobs and ensure that our country is modern and efficient. Democrats offered this bold alternative last week, and I’m proud to stand behind a plan that will actually help rebuild America and put Americans back to work for decades to come.”
