Happy Infrastructure Week!

Today, we kick off one of my favorite weeks in the year: Infrastructure Week!

For the last few weeks, I've been traveling the country and meeting with colleagues to put together a 21st Century transportation plan – one that takes into account our changing climate, our responsibility to the Earth, that seizes the chance to lead the world – and moving that plan forward. I even sat down with President Trump to extract a promise of $2 trillion of investment in infrastructure.

We have a lot of work to do. We must plan on electrifying the highway system and more towards a fully-electric bus system, move away from fossil fuels and toward clean, sustainable energy and the infrastructure to make our country an example for the rest of the world.

Watch my video and join the conversation on Facebook and share your thoughts on what the future of our infrastructure should look like.

Onward,

Peter
