Ahead of Trump’s First State of the Union, Environmental Leaders and Experts Respond to Trump’s Infrastructure Scam

Washington, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — In his first State of the Union address, President Donald Trump is expected to announce a proposal that the administration will falsely brand as a plan to invest in our nation’s infrastructure. A leaked version of the proposal shows that it is, instead, a full-scale gutting of environmental protections that will harm America’s future—all to benefit corporate polluters and wealthy developers.

Center for American Progress

On Tuesday, January 30, at 1:00 p.m. ET, the Center for American Progress, Defenders of Wildlife, and Earthjustice will host a conference call with environmental leaders and experts to discuss the damaging impacts of Trump’s proposal to families, communities, and the nation’s air, water, and wildlife.

Christy Goldfuss, Senior Vice President for Energy and Environment Policy, Center for American Progress
Jonathan Jarvis, Former Director, National Park Service
Betsy Hodges, Former Mayor of Minneapolis and Resident Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics
Jamie Clark, President and CEO, Defenders of Wildlife and former head of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
