Clinton proposes infrastructure investment if elected

By |  November 30, 2015

At an event marking the launch of her “Hard Hats for Hillary” campaign, Hillary Clinton revealed a plan to boost the federal investment in infrastructure by $275 billion if she is elected president, reports CBS. Clinton says this proposal is just the beginning of her larger plan to put Americans back to work.

“To build a strong economy for our future, we must start by building strong infrastructure today,” Clinton says. “I don’t have to tell you what a sorry state we’re in. Our roads and bridges are potholed and crumbling. Families endure blackouts because our electric grid fails in extreme weather.”

Clinton’s proposal would dedicate $250 billion to direct federal investment in roads, airports and public transit across the country, says a campaign aide. The remaining $25 billion would go into a national infrastructure bank, or “Strategic Infrastructure Bank.”

According to CBS, Clinton will present additional proposals that focus on job creation, including investments in research and manufacturing, over the next several weeks.
