Last year, I released an ambitious infrastructure plan that would leverage public and private investment to repair our crumbling bridges and roads, build world-class airports, and connect all American households to the internet.
But that’s just a down payment. We have to do even more. As a share of the economy, federal infrastructure investment is roughly half of what it was 35 years ago. That underinvestment is hurting our economy — and our future.
In my first 100 days as president, I will send a plan to Congress making the biggest, most forward-looking investment in American infrastructure since the construction of the Interstate Highway System.
