Senate Democrats have written a $1 trillion bill to repair U.S. roads, railways, sewers and other infrastructure over the next 10 years, The New York Times reports.
The bill may be a way to call President Trump's bluff. On the campaign trail, he repeatedly said he would "rebuild our crumbling infrastructure." In his Inaugural Address, he promised to build new infrastructure "all across our wonderful nation." He said his plan to rebuild would cost $1 trillion.
By the numbers
The plan devotes:
- $180 billion to rail and bus systems
- $65 billion to ports
- $110 billion for water and sewer systems
- $100 billion for energy infrastructure
- $20 billion for public and tribal lands
We're asking President Trump to work with us to make it a reality.
Sen. Chuck Schumer and other Democrats involved are hoping for bipartisan support.
In December, Schumer said an infrastructure plan proposed by Trump "sounds good to me," Politico reports.
