In his State of the Union address Jan. 20, President Obama sought to reassure Americans that his administration is determined to finance big-ticket infrastructure projects with Congress’ help to boost key industries such as trucking and construction.
Obama said “modern ports, stronger bridges, faster trains and the fastest Internet” are pillars of a society determined to be economically prosperous. He then challenged members of Congress to not set their sights on one infrastructure project, mainly the Keystone XL pipeline, but to approve legislation that upgrades infrastructure networks in cities and states.
“Democrats and Republicans used to agree on this. So let’s set our sights higher than a single oil pipeline. Let’s pass a bipartisan infrastructure plan that could create more than 30 times as many jobs per year, and make this country stronger for decades to come,” Obama said.
