“There is work that needs to be done. There are workers who are ready to do it.” ~POTUS
Today, President Obama called for Congress to approve a plan to begin upgrading our nation’s deteriorating infrastructure. This plan – with its $50 billion price tag – would not cover the $2.2 trillion needed to address the deficiencies identified by the American Society of Civil Engineers infrastructure report card. But, it would jump-start the rebuilding process.
The plan to upgrade our nation’s infrastructure was previously announced by the POTUS on Labor Day, but it is still unclear if the plan will be able to overcome the apparent Congressional stalemate in Washington.
TBD on how much – if any – of these funds will be applied to upgrading the nation’s electric grid.
