WASHINGTON (Feb. 12, 2018) –President Trump released his long-awaited infrastructure plan, disappointing many in the energy and transportation sectors looking for a true modernization plan for our nation’s infrastructure.

The following is a statement from Grant Carlisle, advocacy director of the national, nonpartisan business group E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs):

“This plan ignores American energy and transportation needs of today – as well as tomorrow. It does not modernize our grid so we can reach more distributed energy. It does not plan for advanced vehicles to be on our roads. It is unfortunately just not a forward-looking document.”
