The AP (6/4, Thomas, Boak) reports that “President Donald Trump is launching a major push for a $1 trillion overhaul of the nation’s roads and bridges.” The AP adds, “Trump plans a series of events this coming week to highlight his effort to modernize American infrastructure – the highway, waterway, electrical and airway systems on which the nation operates.” Reuters (6/3, Rampton) quoted White House National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn saying, “It doesn’t matter who you are – whether you’re a farmer in the Midwest or a mother driving your kids to and from school, or work, or a college kid flying back and forth to school – you’re affected by infrastructure.”
President Donald Trump is expected to announce a new proposal for air traffic control operations at 11:30 a.m. Monday. Watch the president’s remarks in the player here.
