STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on President Trump’s Infrastructure Plan

"Los Angeles, rightfully so, is recognized as a place where we are stepping up to close the yawning infrastructure gap, make people’s commutes shorter, and modernize our ports and airports. Any federal plan must expand real dollars, and not increase the burden on local government to pick up the slack when Washington won’t lead. As chair of the U.S. Conference of Mayors Infrastructure Task Force, I will be advocating on Capitol Hill for a real plan, with real results, and a fair share from the federal government. They can’t count on our dollars if they aren’t matching them." - Mayor Eric Garcetti
