President Trump’s infrastructure plan is underwhelming Ohio’s Democratic U.S. senator, who had said it was an issue he hoped he and the White House could work on together. For Ohio Public Radio, WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on the $1.5 trillion plan.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly called for massive infrastructure spending and his message is being echoed by an Ohio Democrat. 

WKSU’s Jeff St.Clair reports that U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown says the place to start is America’s bridges.

Brown made the announcement of his $75 billion Bridge Investment Act this week in front of the historic Center Street bridge in the Cleveland Flats.

President Trump is turning his attention this week to the $1 trillion U.S. infrastructure overhaul he promised during his campaign. But Ohio’s Democratic U.S. senator says the details are looking a lot different than candidate Trump promised.  

The White House won’t release its plan until next month, but some preliminary reports say the trillion-dollar program would actually mean $200 billion from the federal government with  the rest coming from private investment, state and local funds – and requiring cuts in spending on other domestic programs.
