Minnesota Star steers the way
James Oberstar, a Democrat from Minnesota who chairs the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, said today he and party leaders were finalizing plans to spend $85 billion on transportation and public works projects. Those would upgrade crumbling roads, bridges, sewers and other aging infrastructure. Senator Oberstar said the bill's language would require that federally funded projects "can be started with people on the construction site working in 90 days". More and more the USA's new administration is falling in line with China's plans...domestic infra structure and more domestic infra structure.....and out with the grand plans of the Wall St greedies. Back to economic basics.
