President Trump has pledged $1 trillion in funds for infrastructure. California has stopped their complaining and is trying to get a slice of the pie, putting forth plans for $100 billion worth of projects. Their roads are crumbling and water storage is just a couple of things that need to be improved.
While California Democrats have feuded with Trump over issues including immigration, state officials have voiced encouragement about his pledge to put $1 trillion dollars into infrastructure projects.
“We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation,” Trump said during his inauguration.
State Transportation Agency Secretary Brian Kelly told reporters he plans to meet soon with new federal Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao to discuss the wish list.
Asked about whether tensions between California and Trump over other issues might hurt the state’s requests, Kelly said the state has had a “very functional and good relationship” with federal officials. “We expect that continue and we are going to work hard towards making that continue,” he said
