Trump Infrastructure Plan is Another Corporate Giveaway to Dirty Energy

WASHINGTON - In response to Donald Trump’s proposed Infrastructure Bill, Greenpeace spokesperson Molly Dorozenski said:

"Trump’s infrastructure bill is disguised as a 'jobs bill,' but it's yet another attempt by the administration to force through pipelines that threaten land, water and Indigenous sovereignty.  A true jobs bill would invest in clean energy and put Americans to work changing our future, not locking us into a dirty and destructive past. By focusing on removing regulatory roadblocks to building destructive projects, the administration shows its cards: this is all about profit for corporations, and make sure that concerns about the environment don’t get in the way.

"This plan demonstrates that any hope of infrastructure being a bipartisan effort with a positive impact has been sorely misplaced. Instead, it’s just another corporate giveaway designed to line the pockets of Trump’s billionaire friends.  And to add insult to injury, a proposed fund to pay for this will come from ‘mineral and energy development on federal lands and waters.’ We can't let Trump turn America into another one of his distressed properties."
