Some people look at that $1 trillion and see dollar signs for themselves. Others look and see opportunities for municipalities to make smart investments on materials that will be long lasting and durable.
Republicans are walking tall these days, having earned that right after a victorious election cycle. Not only are we in control of the White House and Congress, but we have  partisan state legislative chambers as well as both houses of legislatures and the governorship in 23 states. That's an electoral feat worth celebrating.
But we risk losing that control if we promote bad legislation. Bills that are harmful to voters will come back to haunt us come campaign season. That's why it was disheartening to see Republicans encouraging state lawmakers to support legislation that takes away local choice and risks squandering President Trump's commitment to improve our nation's infrastructure.
