FINALLY! Pelosi pushes for something that will help our economy and infrastructure.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday she wants the House to take up a Senate bill to create a national infrastructure bank to develop public-private investments into large transportation projects.
At a news conference, the California Democrat said she is committed to overhauling the nation’s infrastructure to mirror such historical achievements as President Eisenhower’s interstate highway system 50 years ago.
She said she foresees some infrastructure spending in a future stimulus bill, but that her vision is, “much bigger than a stimulus.”
Pelosi met with House Democrats and economic and infrastructure experts before the news conference to discuss the role the federal government should play in meeting transportation goals.
