Washington, D.C.-- Congressman Ralph Norman (SC-05) today released the following statement regarding President Trump’s released infrastructure proposal:
"President Trump has made fixing our nation’s crumbling infrastructure a top priority, and I could not agree more. With this proposal, we are on the right path to building a stronger America.
“As a real estate developer myself, it is great to see the President put his builders’ hat on. It is time to allow the state and local governments to have more control in the decision making process. By incentivizing $1.5 trillion dollars in new investment, the President’s proposal will create the much needed positive impact on our communities and economy.
“Burdensome regulations must be lifted. In order for projects to be completed in an efficient manner and on time, the regulatory approval process must be streamlined.
“Rural America has been left behind for far too long. It is time that the lives of rural Americans vastly improve with rebuilt roads, clean water, expanded broadband access, and affordable power.
“I am encouraged by President Trump’s plan to rebuild our infrastructure and create a more prosperous, globally competitive America.”
