America’s Roads Falling Apart

The issue of our nation’s infrastructure falling apart goes back to the first Bush administration. Congress has not delivered any plan that would lead to an overhaul. Repairs are constantly being made. But, no wholesale effort to rebuild. It is especially a problem for agriculture.
