The State of California has a backlog of $136 billion in needed highway and transportation repairs and has asked the federal government for help.
The Los Angeles Times reports that California officials submitted a $100 billion “wish list” of infrastructure projects that it hopes will be included in President Trump’s proposed $1 trillion plan to rebuild the nation’s roads and bridges.
Nancy McFadden, Gov. Brown’s executive secretary, wrote in a letter: “These projects will benefit businesses up and down the state and put thousands to work — many in communities with the highest rates of unemployment.”

Democrats in California have fought continuously with President Trump over his stance on immigration, even going so far as to propose that California become a “sanctuary state.”
However, when Trump announced his plan to put $1 trillion toward improving roads, highways, bridges, tunnels, airports and railways all across the nation, Gov. Brown responded, “Amen to that, man. Amen to that. We’re there with you!”
