Obama Turns Attention to Infrastructure

The plan includes rehabilitating or reconstructing 150 miles of airport runways, while also installing a next generation air navigation system to reduce travel time and delays.

The Associated Press is reporting this morning that President Obama is calling on Congress to approve $50 billion in infrastructure spending to upgrade roads, railways and airports and spur long-term economic growth. Additionally, the President plans to call for the creation of a national infrastructure bank so there is a dedicated source of funding for national and regional infrastructure projects.

Obama will discuss the infrastructure plans at a Labor Day event later today in Milwaukee.
