Question of the Week: Do you support bold proposals like the 414 Plan to cut through the red tape and speed up construction projects?Posted by Randy | January 27, 2012
This week, the President delivered the State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress and the American people. In a wide-ranging speech that touched on a variety of national concerns from economic recovery, to changing energy policy and addressing the ongoing housing crisis, the President offered his Administration's 'blueprint' for the next year without providing many details. One goal articulated by the President was his desire to "clear away the red tape that slows down too many construction projects" through an executive order. While specifics of the President's proposal remain unclear, I have offered a bold proposal, the 414 Plan, that does just that--clears away the red tape, puts Americans back to work, cuts costs, and accelerates necessary construction and improvements to our nation's roads and bridges.
The 414 Plan
GOAL: Seeks to build roads and bridges in 414 days, rather than 13 years.
