Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH): “I’m pleased that President Trump is coming to Richfield to talk about the need to rebuild America’s aging infrastructure. As I’ve said before, the President’s plan is a good starting point for discussion, and I’m hopeful both parties will work together on this issue.”

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK): “The president was exactly right today—we need a sweeping infrastructure proposal to rebuild our nation’s infrastructure. A major infrastructure bill is more than just legislation—it is an investment in the economic future of individuals and communities around the country. We know the benefits: an increased GDP, stronger economy, higher wages and skilled jobs.”

Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV): “The President is right. We must work together to update our failing roads & bridges.

Cabinet Members

Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke: “President Trump is a builder and he knows that infrastructure is not merely an expense, it’s an investment in America. Every dollar we put into rebuilding our roads, bridges, transmission lines, and pipelines will bolster the economy. At Interior we have tens of thousands of miles of roads and bridges, pipelines, trails, docks, and more. We also are responsible for permitting infrastructure projects whether they are on federal lands or not. Between investing in our public lands infrastructure to rebuild crumbling roads to streamlining the permitting process, we are supporting President Trump’s modernization of our nation’s infrastructure.”

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue: “The bold #infrastructureinamerica agenda from @POTUS is necessary to increase productivity and boost the economy for all Americans, including the agriculture sector. A quarter of the new federal dollars will flow to rural communities.”

Advocacy Organizations

National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons: “Like tax reform, a significant investment in our nation’s infrastructure has the power to supercharge manufacturing in America by improving our competitiveness while also making our families and communities safer. The administration has already delivered on some important permitting reforms, and the president’s call for a substantial $1.5 trillion investment is the kind of leadership manufacturers have wanted for a very long time.”
