President Donald Trump put a halt to his still-developing Advisory Council on Infrastructure.

According to Bloomberg, real estate developers Richard LeFrak and Steven Roth were expected to lead the group, which was established by executive order this summer. The council was designed to vet transportation projects, help guide Trump’s infrastructure plan and advise the president on infrastructure spending.

The end of the Advisory Council on Infrastructure comes after two other advisory councils to the president were disbanded. The American Manufacturing Council and the Strategic and Policy Forum were dissolved a day earlier following a string of resignations tied to the president’s response to the events in Charlottesville, Virginia.
