Gov. John Bel Edwards released the following statement following the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act in Congress last night.
Gov. Edwards said:
Donald Trump's White House has introduced his infrastructure plan which he hopes will not only further fuel the economy which is currently running on high-turbo horsepower but to also build the country's sorely needed infrastructure fixes.
The general concept is to invest $200 million dollars of federal money and combine it with state and private investments.
Today is infrastructure day, again. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, whose flight was canceled yesterday, managed to make it up to the White House to participate in the discussion with President Donald Trump who revealed his plan.
