National Report

The day Donald J Trump (R) signed Families First Coronavirus Response Act, the COVID-19 Response Bill in a White House signing ceremony, which no Democrats were invited to attend, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA12) was discussing the next legislation which would focus on Infrastructure. This week Trump is parroting the same idea. We remember, during her first term, she advanced the idea, reflective of how things are done here in Minnesota, of having both a Capital Budget and a Operating Budget.

If Trump follows her lead on this idea, he might actually do something beneficial for our nation for the first time since he has been in office. He has talked about a public/private partnership and if it results in the Federal Government selling bond for infrastructure projects it will create a new market and pump more money into the system.
