Senator David Perdue: President Trump Is Beginning To Rebuild Our Nation’s Infrastructure

“We need a smart approach to prioritize and leverage significant economic development projects like they do in the real world”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on President Trump’s plan to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure:

“When he was elected, President Trump said job one was growing the economy. In 2017, he focused on reducing regulations, unleashing our energy potential, and cutting taxes. In 2018, President Trump wants to move to immigration, trade, and infrastructure. He is now beginning to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure. We need a smart approach to prioritize and leverage significant economic development projects like they do in the real world. We need to streamline federal, state, and local cooperation and remove regulatory roadblocks so we can get the greatest return on investment for taxpayers. In Georgia, we saw this approach in action when the I-85 bridge collapsed and was repaired a month ahead of schedule. We need to replicate that efficiency on a larger scale so we can increase productivity and ultimately update our nation’s infrastructure network to support additional growth.”
