WASHINGTON, D.C. —  Senate Democrats proposed a plan to spend $1 trillion on transportation and other infrastructure projects over 10 years, which they estimate would create 15 million jobs, ABC News reported.

The Democrats pitched their plan to President Donald Trump and asked for his support. During his presidential campaign, Trump bemoaned the state of America's infrastructure and promised to generate $1 trillion in investment, but has offered few specifics, the report said.

The plan includes $210 billion to repair aging roads and bridges and another $200 billion for a "vital infrastructure fund" to pay for a variety of transportation projects of national significance, according to ABC News. For the full story, click here.
