January 30, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D - Los Angeles County) issued the following statement ahead of the State of the Union. The President is expected to address infrastructure in his speech.

“If President Trump is serious about a bipartisan infrastructure plan, he’d be smart to look at our proposal, first introduced in May 2017, calling for a bold investment in our nation’s infrastructure. The plan currently has 153 Democrats signed on, which is more than 75 percent of the Democratic Caucus.

Additionally, the Congressional Progressive Caucus and I are calling for a $2 trillion infrastructure investment over 10 years, which would employ 2.5 million Americans in its first year. If Trump wants a bipartisan solution to rebuild our transportation, water, energy, and information systems, while massively overhauling our country’s unsafe public buildings, we’ve got the plan for him.”
