Trump signs executive order on infrastructure

It’s out with the old and in with the new after President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday to speed up the permit approval process for highways, bridges, and all major building efforts.

The plan is all a part of his proposal to spend a whopping $1 trillion to fix the aging U.S. infrastructure. According to the President, the executive order will streamline the current process for infrastructure projects and will reverse Obama-era executive order.

The Obama administration required all federal agencies and contractors to factor in scientific projections for increased flooding and ensure projects can withstand rising sea levels on all projects.

President Trump pointed out that under the previous executive order, strict building standards for government-funded projects caused huge delays on much needed US infrastructure.

Trump’s Executive Order reverses the Obama-era plan and will expedite the process of rebuilding U.S. Infrastructure while keeping environmental protection a part of the process. At his press conference New York City press conference President Trump said, “No longer will we allow the infrastructure of our beautiful country to crumble and decay.”

“We will rebuild our country with American workers, American iron, American aluminum, American steel,” said Trump.

According to President Trump, his executive over will create millions of American jobs and provide a boost to the US economy.
