"Infrastructure: White House Launches Vision On Spending, Projects"

"The White House today began a weeklong effort to promote plans to boost infrastructure spending by private companies, states and cities.

The administration will publicize its vision in events and announcements. It kicked off with a long-discussed proposal to privatize air traffic control, which aides called 'low-hanging fruit.'

'This new entity will not need taxpayer money, which is very shocking,' President Trump said during remarks unveiling the proposal in the White House East Room.

He was joined by Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, House Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Bill Shuster, and previous Transportation secretaries and Federal Aviation Administration heads."
