FARM BUREAU: PRESIDENT'S INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN PAVES WAY FOR BOOSTING RURAL ECONOMY
American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:

"President Trump's 'Building a Stronger America' plan promises to bring long overdue improvements to the country roads, bridges and broader infrastructure that farmers and ranchers depend on to reach customers at home and abroad. While past infrastructure plans have left rural America in the dust, this administration has not forgotten the rural communities that form the backbone of our nation.

"The proposed $50 billion in rural spending will help restore our deteriorating infrastructure and protect U.S. agriculture's place as a world leader in production. We also applaud the administration for placing the decisions of how these dollars should be spent back at the local level. Governors and local officials know their roads and bridges better than anyone, and they are ready to set the priorities for rebuilding rural America.

"Farmers and ranchers know the pride of ownership and a hard day's work, and the president's infrastructure plan rewards those values. With less bureaucratic red tape and more local ownership, we're confident this plan gives rural America the tools to drive our economy forward."
