Local Governments Do The Heavy Lifting In Trump's Infrastructure Plan

Local Governments Do The Heavy Lifting In Trump's Infrastructure Plan

$571 million to hire 2,000 additional Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers and agents.

The Trump administration says, however, that Congress need not spend all of the money called for under the deal, particularly with regard to domestic spending.

Deficit hawks in Congress and conservative activists who railed against President Barack Obama's spending plans called the GOP debt explosion "dangerous", "immoral" and "a betrayal".

Republicans and conservative commentators such as Brit Hume of Fox News hammered the constant deficits of the 10-year plan.

As to the result of the cuts, almost all programs related to combating the effects of climate change - which the administration called "lower priority" - would be eliminated from the federal budget. Mulvaney, a former Tea Party Republican, said on CBS News on Monday that if he were still in Congress, it's not something he would support.

Fox News's website tells readers that Medicare is spared "as he promised during the 2016 campaign", but a cursory search of the White House's own budget document reveals this is not true.

Photo Copies of President Trump's budget proposal for the next fiscal year were delivered to the Capitol on Monday.

Shiffrin, a favorite in the slalom - she won gold in that event in 2014 - is now slated to race that event on Friday. But don't be surprised if it gets delayed again or postponed to a different day.

"We know that's the starting point".

Trump announced a $200 billion infrastructure initiative - an area he says has been ignored for too long, partially he says because of $7 trillion dollars spent in the Middle East over the last two decades. "We're trying to build roads and bridges, and fix bridges that are falling down", the President said.

The initiative to revive crumbling U.S. roads, bridges and airports includes just US$200 billion in federal funds, which the White House says will spur at least another US$1.3 trillion in investments from state governments and private investors. At a press conference on February 8 held by several Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. The plan centers on using $200 billion in federal money to leverage local and state dollars for the projects.

But the infrastructure proposal's fate is uncertain.

Benjamin said Monday's discussion waded through paying for road projects, water and sewer infrastructure; large-scale "dream" projects; and concerns, including Trump's plan to quicken the environmental permitting process to start road projects.

The proposal also includes $23 billion for border security and immigration enforcement, including $18 billion for a wall along the frontier with Mexico.
