Statement from Congressman Dan Donovan on President Trump’s Infrastructure Proposal

February 12, 2018
Press Release

“Our nation’s infrastructure, which once stood as an example of building superiority, strength, and innovation, has not kept pace with the needs of the American people. We can and must do better. Today, President Trump delivered a focused and inspired plan for a modernized system that will not only renew our crumbling roads and bridges, but will also strengthen the economy, make U.S. industry more competitive, create jobs, and improve the lives of millions of Americans.

“I especially support the President’s emphasis on streamlining the permitting process, empowering state and local authorities, and training the American workforce of the future. By cutting through red tape and reforming inefficient processes – which have throttled progress for decades – we will create a stronger and more prosperous country. This bold proposal is more than just improving highways, it’s about transforming and modernizing our systems to support American families and unleash the potential of U.S. businesses. Now is the time for Congress to deliver Staten Islanders and Brooklynites the infrastructure they deserve. I stand ready to work with my colleagues and the Trump Administration to rebuild our nation.”
