Rural Groups Call for Representation on Trump’s Infrastructure Council

Rural Groups Call for Representation on Trump’s Infrastructure Council
The nation’s rural towns, cities and counties—and their unique challenges—should be represented on the Presidential Advisory Council on Infrastructure, the American Farm Bureau Federation and more than 200 other rural and agriculture organizations wrote in a recent letter to Pres. Donald Trump.
 
Trump established the council in July by executive order and directed the group to provide a report to him addressing federal support for surface transportation, aviation, ports and waterways, water resources, renewable energy, electricity transmission, broadband, pipelines and other sectors. According to the executive order, the council will be composed of no more than 15 members with experience in real estate, finance, construction, communications, regional and local economic development and other areas.
