Secretary Elaine L. Chao's Statement Following the President's State of the Union Address
Tonight President Trump issued a bipartisan call to keep our economy strong, encourage innovation, cut red tape and create more jobs. Without innovation, our transportation systems cannot keep pace with the changes needed to remain competitive in the global economy. And without a focus on trimming unnecessary red tape, communities will continue to wait years for critical infrastructure they desperately need. So we look forward to continuing to work on this Administration’s initiatives to help deliver infrastructure more quickly, and cut the red tape hampering innovation.
