Live at 10:35: Congressman Armstrong talks Coal Creek Station and infrastructure


There is broad bipartisan agreement that America needs to invest in infrastructure. The problem is, there isn’t a lot of agreement on what infrastructure is.

In Congress, Democrats are pushing an infrastructure bill that includes a raft of progressive policy priorities that have little to do with roads or bridges, or power grids.

Congressman Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota talks about that debate on this episode of Plain Talk Live.

We’ll also talk about Coal Creek Station, North Dakota’s largest coal-fired power plant, finding a new buyer. The plant was set to be closed, but now a new company plans on operating it into the future, but what does it need to be a success?

Also, the role of big tech in our lives continues to be a pressing political concern, particularly in issue areas like privacy and free speech. Armstrong has been appointed to a task force taking on this issue and will talk about his work there.
