"Dems Call For $1 Trillion Federal Investment In Infrastructure"

"House Democrats on Thursday called for $1 trillion in federal dollars for an infrastructure overhaul, a proposal that comes just days ahead of the announcement of President Trump’s long-awaited infrastructure proposal.

The House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) unveiled the party’s own infrastructure package at a press conference meant to counter the anticipated release of a Monday White House proposal.

“The federal government is a necessary partner in this effort to rebuild our country. It’s not enough to punt this to the private sector, as the president wants,” said Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.)."
