U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan today questioned U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao during a House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee hearing on the Trump Administration and Congress’ push to privatize our Nation’s air traffic control system.

Prior to the committee hearing, Nolan said: “President Trump’s infrastructure plan hands over more than 80% of our Nation’s infrastructure funding to the private sector and is not feasible. Business leaders, the Chamber of Commerce, and the AFL-CIO have all testified before the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee stating the Federal Government must fund at least 90% of our infrastructure. The remaining 10% at most should come from public-private partnerships.”
