31 President Donald Trump called on Congress Tuesday to advance a $1.5 trillion plan to “rebuild our crumbling infrastructure” in his first official State of the Union address.

Trump’s remarks, while still a ways off from the level of detail to be expected from a formal written proposal, offered the clearest picture yet from the president himself on his vision for an American infrastructure revamp.

To fund the plan, Trump said all federal appropriations should be “leveraged by partnering with state and local governments and, where appropriate, tapping into private sector investment.”

He also called for the legislation to reduce the time required to approve building permits to as little as one to two years.
