AASHTO Reacts to President Trump’s State of the Union Address
WASHINGTON – The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials today reacted to President Donald J. Trump’s reference to infrastructure investment during the State of the Union address before Congress.

​"We are pleased that President Trump continues to highlight the need for additional federal investment in infrastructure,” said Bud Wright, AASHTO executive director. "AASHTO has for years called for a long-term strategy to shore up the Highway Trust Fund in order to maintain federal investment in surface transportation. We are looking forward to seeing the President’s infrastructure plan and working closely with the administration and Congress to advance a robust, long-term infrastructure bill that supports needed reforms such as streamlining project delivery in ways that also protect our natural resources."
